Birth of a Doula

Last night I had an interview with an expecting mama at 5pm. She was two weeks from her EDD. She hired me to be her doula at 9:30pm and she welcomed her baby a little after 1am. Less than twelve hours after meeting her, I was back home in my bed and she was snuggled in with the newest member of her family.

Her story isn't mine to tell. I will just say that she was amazing, strong and beautiful.

I am thankful to have been invited to be present at such a sacred moment. I pray that I was able to fulfill my role in a way that was beneficial to both mom and dad.

Welcome little bundle!
