The course was amazing, informative and empowering
Exceeded my expectations.
I just wanted to share that I just had my first opportunity to use my Doula Training…. It was the best experience of my life…..I was so excited when she asked me and was even more excited when the birth happened….my first baby had no complications and everything went great…..she and her fiance were quite happy that I was there for them….I still cant stop smiling cause if you remember in the training I was the one who said I didnt want to see from the waist down or be the catcher lol….I was able to see the baby come out from where I was standing and supporting her…what an amazing experience…I wasnt even quesy at all.
I so wanted to share with you….the delivering doctor asked for a business card and said that this birth wont be the only one….she is quite excited that I have the training…
Thanks for preparing me with the skills and knowledge and I’m so proud of myself….
