I was blessed yesterday with being allowed to attend my first birth as a doula. Granted, I was a student doula, but I was acting in a doula role nonetheless. I was able to learn so much from the doula and loved being a part of a momma getting the birth she wanted. When I got home my husband asked me if it confirmed anything in my heart. My reply was, “I just got to support a momma get her perfect birth. Of course it did.” This birth solidified something in me and I can’t wait to help more moms feel respected in whatever birth they so choose.
