Ok, NOW I am actually pursuing this. If you have been a reader of my blog, you might remember this post talking about me pursuing my dream of becoming a Doula. Well, as for most things in my life, my timing was not exactly on. So, now almost 2 years later, I am going for it. I am hoping to attend my DONA training in March (3 days long) and attend 3 births of friends by October. During that time I will also need to read 5 books about Doulas, labor, delivery and postpartum care. I will need to attend a childbirth and breastfeeding class. On top of all that, I am required to write a 500-1000 word essay on the value and purpose of labor support. It feels a little overwhelming to take on, but I am planning for most of the work to take place during the Summer when I won't have to worry about school or Girl Scouts.
I am so excited and I cannot wait to have this opportunity to be a part of one of God's greatest miracles.
