underway...


The process has officially begun!

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!

Big stuff.
