Running down a dream

I did my first doula consultation last night.

I wasn't terribly nervous and found myself focused on the couple (even though it meant Daddy having to put Chou down to bed alone for the first time in months). After settling in, I thoroughly enjoyed spending an hour chatting about pregnancy, birth and the like.

It's an interesting feeling, to sit in front of two people experiencing what's sure to be one of life's most amazing journeys and essentially auditioning to be a part of it.

I'll let you know if they choose me or not.

That's awesome! Even if you don't attend this couples' birth, it's all an experience! My first birth as a doula was Sep 1 and it was amazing... :) I hadn't see this when I posted my comment on your last post, or I would have known how your midwifery stuff was coming along!
