I am grateful to be in a place in my life where I am straightforward and honest about finding the right fit for me. I am not the right fit for everybody, and that is a good thing, my energy is not wasted, and there is no miscommunication or misunderstanding. When somebody asks me what I do as a Doula, my honest answer is I have no idea. I come into a labor and birth completely blank, present and conscious to the energy in the room, and become what the mother needs. It is different every time, even with the same mother. The video above clearly explains that Doulas do not speak for the mother, but also support and inform her of all of her choices, and make sure she is being heard. It is a beautiful harmony between the doctor, nurses, midwives, and doulas, because it is all about the mother.
Mothers, Fathers, Pregnancy, Labor, Birth and Babies are a miracle,
Honored to do God’s work,
