Introduction into my doula training

My postings have been fewer as I have been wrapped up in working on getting together coursework for the doula certification that I will be offering.  I never imagined I would find this so fulfilling.  So much so, that I decided to share my first unit with you guys:)  I hope you enjoy.  I'll post a new part every few days.  I would love feed back.  Also, the book I am using is called The Nurturing Touch at Birth by Paulina Perez.  I have two other papers that I would be happy to share with you if you give me your e-mail address.  I just have them in pdf format.

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.
