It has been a while and things have started to get busy in the life of the Rad Girl Doula.
Europe was wonderful, relaxing and everything I needed for a little wile(:
My friend Mery just finished her doula training with Dona International and she has agreed to be my backup doula for the rest of births this year. Thank you Mery.
I am still taking care of the toddler. She is going to be 2 in a few days and I am delighted to be part of her life.
The work of finding clients has been tricky due to my availability as I juggle work and childcare, but continuing working with the Birth Doula Program is one of the most rewarding experiences of my life!
Yesterday, I was the labour support for a wonderful couple, who had a huge healthy and beautiful 9-pounder of a newborn. 24.5 hours after her water broke, she laboured through and through and got the un-medicated birth she was hoping for. What a superstar team her, the partner, and the baby were!
Need a doula? I am available to help you out if your due date is as early as January. Let me know by emailing me, or calling. We can set up a meeting, go for tea, or have a playdate with your little ones to get to know one another.
Loving the chilly wind and wishing everyone warm tea, nettle and gingseng infusions and the many lovely things about the harvest season.
