I am back in the doula world after a rather long hiatus!
I became a doula in 2012 and absolutely adored the experience of helping woman achieve a beautiful birth but unfortunately I burned myself out second guessing myself and trying to be the right person for EVERY person. I had decided to walk away from my passion instead of just going on a hiatus after my 4th child was born. My 4th pregnancy was hard and my health continued to be a struggle after she was born.
Late one night as I contemplated the upcoming labor of a family member and how I wanted to help make sure she was well taken care of at that time God let me know he loved all his daughters in the same way I loved this family member. It has been made clear to me on numerous occasions since then, that my work in the birth world was not done. I truly believe that God knows who needs me at their birth and he will bring them to me.
Moving forward with faith I plan to work on better listening to and trusting my own intuition. This will allow me to more confidently provide the service that each of my wonderful clients needs.
