Just as I was about to hang it up for a while, the Universe starts shouting. Nearly 18 months after the birth of my own daughter, I am putting back on my doula hat.
I had been putting off massage and doula work until Lil was able to be more independent. Now that she is, I was wondering if maybe I should hold off until she and any future children, were older. After speaking with other women in my life it has become apparent that I am meant to do this work. I am supposed to walk this path. It is certainly not the fast or easy road, but I need to have meaning in the work that I do and helping women whether it be physically through touch and body work, or emotionally supportive to a new mother and her family, this is what I am called to do in this moment in time.
