Just practiced with the Shovelglovel....
My *abbridged* dictionary doesn't have "doula"
I have heard this term in reference to women who help deliver a 
baby, you know like a midwife...
Is this just a funky synonym for "mother"?

PS. Once more, damn gondola rowing...Have you tried this one? I am 
sorry I invented it...I am the doula of invention for muscles which 
are pathetically underdeveloped! LOL :)
This is probably because we rarely row gondolas in real life...Well 
maybe I will have to put on some Vivaldi to set the mood :) 
PPS. Hope your cats and baby enjoy watching your "frantic" sg
