I've begun training as a doula. What's that you ask? In a nutshell, it's a support person, usually female, with no medical or midwifery training, who provides emotional assistance to a mother or pregnant couple before, during or after childbirth. Now with all those silly HIPPA rules and regs, I won't be able to share much of this experience but here's hoping some funny moments happen along the way that I can share in a super HIPPA respectful way.
I am really excited to help out another mother as I had a doula when I had Violet (AKA #3). My first shift is this Saturday...
