After Playing With Integrals!

\[\displaystyle {\color{grey}{\sum_{n=0}^{\infty} \sum_{i=0}^n \frac{(2n)!!(2i+1)!!}{(2i)!!(2n+1)!! } (-b)^{i+n} = \frac{1}{(1+b)^2}\Bigg(\frac{1}{2\sqrt{b}} \ln \Big(\frac{1+\sqrt{b}}{1-\sqrt{b}} \Big) + \frac{b}{1-b} \Bigg)}} \]

Prove the above equality for \(0<b<1\).

Note: I got this fact after manipulating some integrals (i.e. proved it indirectly). I wonder how brilliant members would solve it ! Share your thoughts and hints if you don't have the complete answer.

Wallis' is everything I can see!

That's right, Wallis' is a way to start. But as you will see, it would be messy.I wonder if a simple solution can be found.
