When I started blogging, I told everyone that it would come in bursts and probably only when I really had something to say. It always seems silly to me to say the same thing every other doula has said. Well, today I have something to say. I’ve been thinking this over and rolling it around in my head for quite awhile. My packages have even alluded to some of it. I would have been happy to work with families had they asked for these accommodations but, like in all things birth related, families need to have a certain amount of information before they even know that the questions exist. But I’m happy to say that’s it’s finally taken full shape in my mind.
Birth is such an intimate, special time for families and everyone deserves to have the best experience possible. While having a doula present can be a wonderful, valuable, option for many women, it’s not right for all. That’s why I’ve added these options to what I’m offering my clients. I am so passionate about what I do. I want everyone to have the best birth possible for them. It’s important to me to share that with everyone I can!
