This is a shared journal of the holy work of a birth doula.
“This Holy Work” is not meant to imply that the doula herself is holy, or that her work is above anyone else’s. It simply means that to be part of the sacred dance of birth is to bear witness to the unfolding of holiness.
It means honing one’s awareness of the ying and yang of birth; the delicate and the strong, the feminine and the masculine.
Birth is Life and Life is Birth. The servitude of birth is simply an invitation to behold. And thus, we are all immersed in Holy Work.
Come along the journey with me as we weave our own lessons from the gift of birth.
