One more term down in midwifery school. I have officially been a student (BS, LPN, RN, BSN, and now MSN+DNP) for a VERY long time. I’m so thankful to have the opportunity to be in school for something I love and am so passionate about. I start clinicals next April, so less than a year from now…if I squint my eyes, I can see the light!
Being a doula has taught me to trust women- to listen to them and believe in their bodies…it has shown me patience, intense joy, and deep sorrow. Being a doula inspired me towards midwifery with the hope of making the world a better place. A path sometimes I can’t even believe I get to be on.
I hope everyone is enjoying their summer and hopefully more time with friends & family spent outdoors.
Apologies that it’s been a few months since I’ve posted anything. I have been in the thick of studying and spending time with friends & family. I am excited for a few summer babies that are getting ready to make an appearance soon. It’s nice and hot here in Florida, so remember to stay hydrated and maybe bring your yoga practice indoors for a bit. I just started training for my second marathon and it’s been pretty brutal running outside, unless it’s later in the day (which the night shifter in me loves running at sunset).
And last but not least, I have officially opened up my Etsy shop. Head on over and see what I have listed! Here’s a sneak peak…
I want to say a huge thank you to the following people that helped me create this amazing website. From encouraging me to launch this website, to helping me edit content, to being previous doula clients, to offering amazing photography for this site…I am truly grateful to have these people in my life.
