So I'm looking now into becoming a Doula. Basically it's not that expensive to learn, and I think it would be extremely valuable to do before I have kids.
What really appeals to me about being a Doula is that I'll be a support for a woman going through in incredible time in her life. That I could possibly make it easier, more bearable, less painful etc would be wonderful.
I also like that I could use my Reiki and Massage training along with this. I've been thinking about going back to school, but it seemed like I was turning my back on all the work I've been doing for the past few years. And then it felt like I was failing at being a therapist. So this is a way to move forward and still use my skills!
To start, I'm going to a Raks in Northampton in July. I've sent out a request for more Doula information, and after I've read that I'll have a better understanding of whether this is for me or not :)
I think I would be so proud, to be a Doula...
