On Saturday, I completed my Wise Woman Way of Birth Doula Certification. One of the best decisions I've made. It has expanded my knowledge in ways I wasn't even expecting. My mind was blown every day - I would come home after each class buzzing, emotional, excited and completely exhausted. I am so grateful to have learned such important information regarding pregnancy, the birth process and ways to optimally offer support to a woman during this time. Oh how I wish I knew then, what I know now....well sort of...if my journey wasn't what it was it may not have led me to where I am today. I have so much gratitude for my journey. I now believe and understand that the support of a Doula is invaluable. Although I don't plan on attending many births right away, I do plan on supporting women and partners through birth preparation classes which will also include important information on nutrition (of course!) and prenatal yoga. I'm am just so excited to start creating something really special so that I can continue to support woman and help empower them with knowledge and their own strength leading up to one of the most incredible experiences of their life. You only get one chance at the birth!
