December 30th, 2011

My last client of the year, due Dec 23 is secretly wishing her baby is born in 2012!  This past month I have attended ten births, and two just since the early morning of Dec 28.  I surprisingly had 3 days at Christmas off, and am hoping that I don’t get a call New Years eve.  I now sit exhausted! and in total and complete joy, for the parents I have helped, bring their babies into this world in 2011.   I attended a total of 73 births this year, wow !! how did I do it??  I know my year went by sooo fast, probably because I was working at my passion – BIRTH!     I thank the Universe for helping me keep my schedule on track – I rely on them so I don’t over lap and have a conflict in labouring mamas.  They did throw me a few loops; like back to back births several times, but I attended all.  Except for the bit of time I took off; I believe I was away for two births.  All in all this was a fabulous year, now for the coming year………

 

2012 is going to be very successful – if we chose it to be.  For myself; fewer births and delving into Post Partum work.  I have not as yet professionally experienced this side of the birthing picture and I look forward to having more time with babies that I am helping arrive.  I so enjoyed my four boys when they were new, the precious wee babes are a mystery and a delight 🙂   I look forward to working with mums and dads this ‘year of enlightenment’, 2012 should prove to be the start of a new world.  My schedule is starting to book up, so please contact me soon if you are looking for either doula work or combination birth/postpartum doula work.  As always I look forward to helping you birth your baby.

Enjoy your New Year’s celebration, be safe.   I wish everyone an abundance of love – peace – joy as we all live together on this glorious planet.
