This has to be one of the best things I’ve ever done. The group of ladies was wonderful. The instructor was funny and knowledgeable, a great combo. The information was valuable. The experience was out this world.
There was so much experiential learning going on, hearing other women’s stories about their births or attempts to have children. We all came out seeing so many new and different views of birth. There were wonderful births, traumatic births, happily medicated births, unhappily medicated births.
Sharing a pregnancy with a woman is such a solid, intimate experience. Being able to touch her baby through her belly (with permission) just blew me away.
Being a doula, for me, was still a dream before I met this group. Unlike some others, I haven’t been to anyone else’s birth before. I feel much more empowered and ready to start down this road.
