I attended my weekend training this past weekend for my Doula certification!
The word doula comes from Ancient Greek δούλη (doulē), and refers to a woman of service.
My head is whirling right now. Full of checklists that keep changing their order. I have time, so I just need to relax - being careful not to lose my drive. What I know now: Childbirth Education class at Providence (Dec.) Breastfeeding class, Ann Arbo (Jan.) I need to finish my "packet" LOTS of books to read, and start building my lending library. ... and, AND... I'm waiting to hear from a potential first client!
