May is international doula month!
First a shout out to all the amazing doulas on this planet; you all give so much of your life to help other women achieve what they believe!
Second a shout out to all those moms out there who had a doula at their birth; It is your testimonies of how a doula helped you that helps get the word out to other women that they can birth their way!
I am delighted to be a doula I recently completed my 16 hour doula training by DONA. It was fabulous! Although being a doula is not completely new to me, I think one of the most valuable things I learned at the training is that you never have to stop learning! There is so much to know about how to care for women, but when you have a desire to give of yourself and make a connection with other woman surrounding them with strength, comfort, and love the gift that God has put on the inside of you to love unconditionally comes out! It is that love that enables you (the doula) to cross the many boundaries’ that usually separate women.
Being a doula means to me that I get the amazing privilege of witnessing God’s word still coming to pass in the earth today! God said be fruitful and multiply and from that time until now women all over the world for generation after generation have been fruitfully multiplying! My hope as a doula is that I will have an impact not only on the woman of my generation but the family as a whole. I hope I have the ability to create stronger marital bonds, stronger parental bonds, and in turn create stronger family units! My hope is that more women walk away from their birth experience empowered moms!
I know that the ability on the inside of me to stand beside a woman at the most intense, intimate time of her life and be a constant source of encouragement to her is a gift that was placed in me by God! I fell honored and privileged to have the opportunity to impact some of the most wonderful women on the planet!
