Wow. What a journey I have been on over the past year! Developing as a Doula, supporting my first client, connecting with some amazing, truly soulful ladies who have helped support me in my journey.
Now I am about to start another one. I became a Doula because I am passionate about being there for women, supporting them when they need it most, helping them see the power they hold inside them, listening to them, truly seeing them as women, the amazing instinctual beings that they are. Something in me pushed me further. I want to have the opportunity to change things from the inside :) I want to be a midwife. I want to be able to reach out to the majority of women. Publicise Doulas. I have an urge to learn more.
So in 7 days I will be starting my journey to becoming a Midwife. I couldn't be more excited! I'm nervous too. I feel called to this, but still struggle with feeling good enough. I have virtually *met* a lot of the girls on my course online and can't wait to meet them in person. I can't wait to start my first day in placement, I can't wait to see what my mentor is like.
So, if you like, please follow my journey here :) There will be no names or places mentioned. I will not be dicussing my clients, but rather the things I learn, my struggles, my triumphs, and probably some tears (both happy and sad).
I'd love to share this with you, if you'd like to join me.
