I am wife to an awesome man. He makes me laugh. He treats himself, and I, with respect and honesty.
I am a mother to two girls. They are perfect. At least I think so. They do well in school and they are well behaved, kind kids.
I am a 4-H Leader. For those of you in the know, I don’t need to say more. For those of you that aren't, it is like having a large, extended, sometimes dysfunctional family, which produces some truly well rounded kids to be oh so proud of.
I am a birth worker? I used to say I am a birth doula, but I am now on the cusp of becoming a childbirth educator as well. As a doula I help women have babies. I also help the people, that help the women, have a baby. I am still not real clear on what I will be doing as a childbirth educator. Hmmmmm...........
I will be talking about birth to an audience that is also interested in birth!
I will be educating them on the process of birth.
I will be teaching them how to make an informed decision.
I will be giving them the confidence to give birth.
I will be teaching them about breastfeeding and newborn care.
And the frosting on this cake is that some of my students will likely become doula clients! It will be like getting to see the end of the story. I am so excited about this next step in my birth work journey and the new hat I get to wear!
