There are times when being on call (the only part I don’t like about being a doula) gets tiresome. Never being able to commit to things. Needing to be free to leave at any given moment for a birth.
But as soon as I am at a birth, I remember why.
It is such a miracle to be there when a baby enters the world.
It is an amazing miracle.
I also love seeing notes like this on my clients Facebook pages.
It’s official: Crosbi was born practically smiling Sunday the 16th at 1:58 am – 8lbs. 15oz. & 19.75″ with the help of proud Chris, my awesome Midwife, Lindsey and the most incredible Doula, Sheridan.
It was the fastest birth I have ever been at. Yes, even faster then the time my clients car was towed, I had to drive them to the hospital and she had the baby minutes after arriving.
Faster then that! I will post Crosbi’s birth story in a few days!
This post was inspired by Birth a Miracle Services who is doing a give away. She asked, “Why are you a doula?”
To be a small part of a huge miracle.
