Last week I celebrated 100 births since becoming a doula. What an honour, what an amazing feeling, so many sweet babies, so many lovely families, so many struggles, so many triumphs, so many twists and turns in the journey, so many strong mama’s & so many supportive fathers all seeking to begin their family life with the best start possible.
My crazy doula life has brought me so much, these words above describe so much of that journey for me and I know for all the lovely people I have supported in their journey to parenthood.
