I have been given the role of a doula in this spectacular birth process, but my heart is screaming, "Do more!!! I had no idea that this passion that is seeded in my heart had grown so much in the last few years. These feelings of not being good enough are creeping into my mind. I am walking down this enlightening path that in the birth space, you have to take on the role that the mother needs. You may be a photographer, you may be a doula, you may be a midwife, or you may be a friend You play a huge part on an irreplaceable birth team.
Each piece of a birth team fits together like a machine. The machine, as a whole, could not work if one of the parts was not fulfilling its full potential and fulfilling it well. Each part is needed in order for the job to be accomplished. As with every birth I have ever attended or will ever attend, I am learning something new about birth and something new about myself.
My new role is amazing and I am holding onto these lessons like precious gemstones. I feel my heart wrapping around each one as I glean every bit of joy out of this pregnancy journey. Share your thoughts with other customers. Write a product review.
