Newsletter for doula's or just for those interested

If you haven't noticed, I've got a new newsletter button on the side.  I decided I want to work on a doula manual, but needed some way to get down my ideas and thoughts.  Thus, I thought I'd offer it to those who want it via newsletter here.  I hope to focus on actual processes that doula's go through rather than just on helping women sift through there choices.  I also hope to provide easy to understand information that you can provide for women.  So, if your interested, click on the subscribe button.  I'm planning on making it a weekly thing....hopefully:)

I can't see your newsletter button. I see the spot for it, but have no place to fill it out.

Ok,let me work on it. I would try it with a different browser first because sometimes different browsers mess stuff up:)

Birth is a Journey: Does it have to be life changing?

  • One woman might have to climb on an overfilled boat, risking her life and nearly dying as she escapes over the ocean to come to this land. This experience could certainly be life altering. It may very well color the rest of her life, positively or negatively. (I overcame this amazing struggle and here I am triumphant! OR Holy crap, that was SO hard I don’t know if I can go on! By the way, neither response is “right”. No one would judge the woman with the 2nd response.)
  • One woman may buy an airplane ticket, sit on a comfortable 747 and fly to America with a nice smooth flight and landing. She is happy to be in America. Those welcoming her are glad she is here safe and sound. She may only travel by plane 2-4 times in her life, so it is pretty memorable. But the journey itself probably wouldn’t be life changing; it would simply be a journey.
  • One woman may learn to fly an ultra-light plane to lead a flock of geese into America teaching them to migrate. This experience could certainly be empowering and life altering.
