Hi! I'm Dr. Amy L. Gilliland, an independent PhD researcher and educator. My joy is taking research and making it useful for people - in a wide variety of ways! If you are a doula or nurse, you'll enjoy reading my books, reading my free blog, discovering more about my doula research, and becoming a member to download journal research articles! I also offer one on one consulting! If you are a policy maker, go here for suggested resources. If you are planning an event, visit my courses page for retreat and conference session options! If you are a graduate student seeking a committee member or potential research collaborator, read more about that here! Don't miss her new book, The Heart of the Doula: Essentials for Practice and Life.
