Here I am on the left. My 3rd child was due 14 days later. On the right, is my doula: Elizabeth. I had her come in case I needed to rest, either to help my client or...me!
I was with this mommy for her first child and when she was expecting her second, she called me to be her doula again. Yes! Of course I will!
Not knowing at the time of the call, that I too was pregnant again. Come to find out, our due dates were within 2 weeks from each other. But I was not worried, since my babies love my belly so much, that they never want to come out....yes my 3rd was 3 weeks past due.
There is nothing that will stop me from being the doula I love to be. I have missed family functions, I have spent many hoildays in hospitals, and I have doula-ed when I was due myself. All of which, I am very proud of!! Saturday, September 4, 2010
