Day 294.

I am grateful for birth.

Being a doula is the best job in the world - how can you top being there for a couple in the most intimate and wonderful day of their lives? It is an incredible blessing to watch a baby being born into this world. It is hopeful, miraculous and an amazing privilege. I feel honored to have witnessed this little girl born into water this evening. She is perfect. Birth is amazing, no matter the details of the journey.

Now if I could just fix the spontaneity. I'm just not spontaneous...I'm realizing that as I approach 30. I like to plan WAY too much for this profession...
