As a parent patience is something I feel I always need. I was reminded today that pregnancy and labour are a time of "training" in patience. As you anticipate the arrival of a new baby it is so easy to become impatient. We need to trust that labour will begin at the perfect time. Once again when labour starts we need to be patient and allow our bodies time to birth our babies. How will you practice being patient during your final days of pregnancy and labour?
My family and I have been very fortunate to get to know Susan over the past year. Susan looked after our son while I was in labour with our second child and during the past year has been a great support to our family. She is genuinely passionate about doula-ing and child birth education. Susan is extremely calm and quietly confident and would be a wonderful person as support through childbirth.
Susan is a very caring and giving person who is trustworthy and always goes above and beyond to help where she can. She has been fantastic with our children and a wonderful support for me. Its been pleasure to spend time with her. Enna, Lourens, Aldo & Eva - Chatswood, NSW
Thank you Susan for being our doula at the birth of our first child and again for our second child. It was never more reassuring during labour than seeing you arrive! We can’t envisage it any way other than with your help, support and encouragement for the birth of our beautiful children. Craig & Billie - Paddington, NSW
It is a happy day to finally be at this point. Earnestly beginning my journey as a doula. It has been a long journey filled with distractions and disappointments but finally my dreams are becoming a reality. Why the name blessed birth? Defention of blessed is divinely or supremely favored; fortunate, blissfully happy or contented. It is my prayer that all mothers could feel empowered and blissfully happy. That all women I meet on my journey may sense how much they are valued and loved.
