As a mom, how do you find time for yourself? This is VERY difficult. My husband is ALWAYS telling me to take time for me. This is so hard because if I am doing something for me, that means I might miss something. I feel very selfish but know that it is necessary and when I finally give in and go and have a coffee with a friend, go to dinner, go out shopping or window shopping, I come back refreshed and chances are, I didn't miss a thing.
What is your most embarrassing moment? Talking to someone about hiring a Doula and realizing that just because she has a tunic type shirt does not mean that she is pregnant. Non-pregnant people don't need a Doula. I could have died when she told me she was NOT pregnant. NEVER will I do that again!!!!!!
Tell me about being a doula. How long have you been a doula? What are the benefits of having one? I have always thought I would be a nurse. I made a choice a long time ago and chose not to finish college. Thought about returning several times but it didn't work out and I am totally ok with that. I wanted and thought I would always work in Labor and Delivery. That is where I would spend my days. Well, working in an Ob/Gyn office, you see, read and hear a lot about research and what helps women and labor and what does not. I kept seeing information about being a Doula and thought...I can do that. I did my research and thought "I" had it all planned out. "I" tried for about 4 years to go and take the 3 day class. Typically a scheduling issue or something financial would happen and then I couldn't go. Last August through The Lord working out EVERY last detail, I went and took the course. 3 days at the YWCA here in Greensboro. Agreeing to be a Doula at no charge to 3 teen mom's. That was the fee for the class. I had no idea what the Lord had planned for me. I have had way more than 3 teen mom's and today, a little over a year later, I am waiting on the phone call for baby #16. There is something about meeting with a Mom and her support system, whether it's a boyfriend, Mom, Dad, Husband and planning THAT BirthDay. It is just amazing!!!!! To see her become a Mother. It can be overwhelming and just breathtaking.
