Birth Doula Life on Call
Over and over again, just like a broken record I repeat this phrase. Most of my village understands this statement, but they don't always like it. Most days I am able to be where I need to be, do what I planned to do, fulfill my other life responsibilities. BUT...there are definitely times when I disappear for 32 hours. My village has to pick up the pieces of my life. This task usually goes to my VERY supportive husband. He is good about figuring it all out...dinner, childcare, kids, laundry etc. I have a very good friend that is also very willing to help me out. But even the most supportive friends and family can get tired of this phrase. My solution is to take a long summer break from doula work. This year I'm taking about 5 weeks off call. This time is right around the corner and I think the whole village is excited.
