it's all about the "connection"

Wow... the pressure is on.. back to back appointments.. knowing that I am up against some great doulas... who will be the winner??  I laugh as I call days like these the "dueling doulas"  May the best doula win the client!

What makes you the winner, I ask?  Who will they choose?  Is it me?  or, is it one of the others that the client has been so busily interviewing?

The truth of the matter is this... I want to be your doula.. I really, really do!!  BUT,  and that's a big BUT..  what I really want is for you to choose the right doula just for you.. even if it isn't me!  By the way, I can't imagine why it wouldn't be me. lol  but, quite possibly you could've chosen someone else.. if that's the case.. then I know you heeded my advise and you chose a doula who you connected with.. to me, it's all about the "connection"! 

It's important to connect and have a comfort level with your doula..knowing that you are in good hands on the most important day of your life is your goal.  Someone who puts aside their beliefs, philosophies and ideas and welcomes and believes yours even if only for the day...

I live by my philosophy...

It is YOUR birth..I will support YOU in the birth the YOU want.. I will encourage YOU when it is difficult, guide YOU throughout YOUR entire journey, and cheer for YOU in the end.. My approach is for YOU to "loveYOURlabor"

Good luck to all of the dueling doulas... have a blessed day.. and may our future clients feel the connection that they were looking for in us...
