Time is flying by!

I remember getting started in the process of becoming a know, a few months ago, and hearing that it can take up to a year to get certified.  Well, I am blessed to have wonderful clients and support and I will be through with my certification in about another week and a half!  Can you believe it?!  Time flies when you are having fun.

It is so funny because I sold Premier Jewelry for a few years and I absolutely loved the company and the products but I still didn't enjoy having to try to sell it or talk to people about it.  But I have absolutely no problems talking about being a doula, what it is, babies, moms, and the like.  It is my passion and I'm glad that I am able to do what I love and bless other women and their families.

Quick Update

Just a quick update, I'm still working on how I want this all to look, so please be patient with the current boringness of it. :) I am on the way to being certified! I have all my births and a couple extra. I have 2 births coming up that are completely out of my comfort zone and I am so excited for them! Of the births I'm going to be at here are some of the basics (some are multiple): a birth center birth, 2nd child birth, hospital birth, water birth, natural birth, 4th birth, 5th birth, twins, 1st time birth, my very own best friend's birth, epidural birth, previous children in the room during the birth, and so much more! What an exciting time this is!

I was also so humbled the other night.  I was at one of my other best friend's "Celebration and Send-Off Party" for her upcoming wedding.  I had so many people come up to me and tell me how proud they are of me and excited for what I'm doing as a doula.  It completely took me by surprise!  So thank you to everyone who has given me a word of encouragement!  It means a lot!
