My Doula Dream - Inspiration in the Labor Room
I have a doula dream.
It's a small dream that I believe could achieve a huge result.
I want to remove all of the pain scale posters that plague the laboring rooms of hospitals around the world and replace them with inspirational messages and images. Wouldn't it be inspiring in labor to look up and see a sign like this one? Would anyone really miss the sign with the smiley face that eventually turns into a frowning and crying face?
Let's inspire women during labor.
Let's boost their confidence and be their cheerleader.
I'm going to start with one of my local hospitals. I can't be sure that I'll make any headway, but I know that it won't happen if I don't try.
Care to join me in this effort?
