Inevitably, in a weekend workshop or training I can rarely pay 100% attention for the whole 6-8 hours each day. But the first weekend that I took of Pre Natal Yoga Training, I was sitting on the edge of my mat the entire time!
I was amazed to understand in depth what happens as we progress through pregnancy, and the exciting possibility that I could help women feel more comfortable and empowered that their bodies are meant to do this amazing thing.
I always thought I'd wait until I had had my own birth experience before I started working as a doula. But one of my closest friends from college came to me Fall of 2013 – she had beaten me to the punch. "You're helping me with this!"
And so it began.
I have had the great honor to help friends, students, and relative strangers (although certainly not after the fact :o) on this crazy beautiful day in their lives.
