So, when I got a text from an old BFF, telling me she is in the hospital with an old friend, and asking me for advice, what do I do??? FREAK OUT in excitement. The honor of being asked by an old friend with a friend in labor, for advice, tips, and tricks, gets me sky high. What a great round of short texts, to affirm my love for being a doula, and encourage me in this directions. Too bad long distance doulaing doesn't count for certification!
