Birth

April 7, 2018

The relationship between a doula and her client is sacrosanct. 

It is one built on months of planning and preparation. 

It is time spent researching

Educating oneself

Understanding interventions and the choices you can make

Knowing that at a moment’s notice

Anything can change. 

It is excitement and a buildup of energy to the point of organized chaos

When it is

FINALLY TIME. 

It is everything happening all at once at a birth, but

At the same moment

Time seems to stand still

For the mother focused on her breathing during a powerful surge. 

 

The doula reminding the mother of her

STRENGTH.

The doula with arms held in a comforting

EMBRACE.

The doula wiping sweat from the mother’s brow.

The mother leaning on the doula for

SUPPORT.

The mother relying on the doula for

ENCOURAGMENT.

The mother relying on her birth team for

LOVING REASSURANCE.

 

All leading to the pivotal moment of

BIRTH.

Not just the birth of a baby, but

The birth of a mother.

The birth of a father.

The birth of a

FAMILY.

 

And the doula gets to be there:

To bear witness to this miraculous transformation and say,

“I was there.  I saw YOUR birth.”
