I love supporting all women.
I love seeing her bring her baby up to her chest.
I love watching her hear her baby’s cry.
I love the look on her face when she meets her baby for the first time.
I love how peaceful she can be while nursing her baby in the wee hours of the morning.
I love hearing her say her baby’s name for the first time.
I love when acceptance washes over her.
I love listening to her confidence when she describes her baby’s personality.
I love being there to remind her that the tears she’s weeping are normal.
I love witnessing the first time she realizes her life will never be the same.
I love how she demonstrates grace and beauty.
I love how she kisses her child’s little fingers and toes.
I love watching how she lights up when she reflects on her birth story.
I love being there when she realizes how strong she really is.
Thank you to all the mothers, families, and babies for sharing the most sacred time with us, as doulas. We are honored to witness every baby born into a new family and every woman born into a mother.
Gina, Aimee, and Tara
