This week is such a special week for us and mummas everywhere as it’s international doula week and I want to do this as a shoutout to our doula Gail and the doulas of the world everywhere.
This week is special to me because we opened our world the moment we made the decision as a couple to create our own birth support team with our beautiful and amazing doula by our side through my pregnancy, labour, birth and postpartum for our two babes.
I loved that in villages around the world and all mammals always had support from other women as they went through their journey into motherhood. .
It totally resonated with me in all the fibres and cells in my being that yes I wanted to have the support and experience of a doula journey with me as I went through my beautiful passage into motherhood, AND the support she gave my husband was profound and indescribable too.
Our connection was instant and I knew the moment we sat across the couch from one another that this woman was one of my sacred and treasured soul sistas! .
She has been more to me and to us than sharing her birth support, advice and expertise but a woman who is now a part of our family, a woman who is wise, kind, loving, compassionate, honest, selfless and one of life’s grandest gifts that I feel so grateful to have received in the form of our divine friend and extended family.
We always share our stories and beautiful memories of both both babies birth days and all the moments we had before and after and it seriously opens and warms my heart that we have all of those special memories together as the most epic birth team whoop
I will always rave about my births and labour’s because They both were phenomenal and I LOVED every single second of them, I know that they wouldn’t be as epic AF if Gail wasn’t part of them.
Thank you sista for being part of our family we love you more than words you have changed our world by being a HUGE part of it.
Happy doula week thank you @mindful_mamas For your pic
