(Newspaper site may need a registration)
Nicole is a Marine wife whose husband is in Iraq. Her baby is due before he gets back. As a Marine officer, Nicole is used to being self-reliant and in charge.

Operation Special Delivery, an
organization that supplies doula services to miltary families.
From a related site,
Operation Doula Care: A birth doula is a woman that has been specifically trained to provide physical, emotional and informational support to a pregnant woman before, during and after the birth of her baby. A doula's role is non-medical.
The word "doula" comes from an old Greek word for a woman who gave the same care.
