Welcome Little One


 As the sun began to peek over the horizon this morning I had the honour and privilege to welcome my first little one into the world, as a doula.

Words cannot express how grateful and blessed I feel to have been trusted by this birthing mama, whom I also call friend, to attend her during her labour and birth. She was beautiful, strong, focused and determined.

Congratulations mama and welcome to the world little one.

  6. What an amazing experience! It must be amazing to be on the other side, being able to witness the birth without being the one giving birth!

  12. Congratulations, Kim! What a beautiful experience - may this be the first of many. We hypnobirthed our daughter at home last year, and I've always wondered what it would have been like to have a doula.
