I've been in the birthing world for a while now, but tonight I realized just how long. As I was wandering through the church history museum (on an excellent personalized tour), I saw a familiar face which turned out to be the husband of one of my very first doula clients.
I supported them through the birth of their first baby while I was in the early years of midwifery school. They've since had another baby out of state and it was so neat to see their little ones, and how much their oldest has grown. Guess how old she is.
That's right, I've been at this for five whole years and I still love it.
