Holding space for another woman....
What does it mean to be a doula?
What does it mean to devote your life to the realm of birthing women?
It means leaving your people, your family, your Friday night plans, your child’s birthday party, your Christmas with the family, and recognizing that this woman is too your family.
Surrendering, as a Birth worker, to the flow of the universe calling out to you in this exact moment.
It means honoring a woman and her family with selfless devotion as if the world didn’t exist in this time warp of a moment, and all that was at the center of the universe is the birthing mama.
Holding space means you put all things aside and run arms wide open to serve this glorious life bringer, universal life, help her to transition from our world to the realm of the unborn babies to collect her child and bring her baby down to our earth. We are channels of support, peace and power. We are women of this world.
