In addition to being a mother and Grammy-winning artist, Erykah Badu is a certified doula. This means, when she's not recording albums, the mother of three is helping other women deliver their babies naturally. Badu is a spokesperson for the International Center for Natural Childbearing and offers her services free of charge to a small number of clients. "When I saw the baby, I cried," Badu tells People magazine. I knew what I was supposed to do with my life."
