I love babies. I love their wrinkly skin. I love the faces they make while they sleep. I love how they smell. I love all of their momentous firsts! I love watching parents fall in love with their babies. I love precious little ones who completely change our lives!
The little things people say and do have been invaluable raising my own children. As I have added each child to my family, (we are now blessed with three children) I wonder how I will cope. What will happen with my relationship with my spouse? Will I be able to spend quality time with my older child(ren)? Etc. I always end up turning to women I trust. Friends, and family members that have gone through what I am going through. Now I know that another woman I could have turned to is a postpartum doula.
While I am working toward certification through DONA, I have read about, and met so many amazing people. I am learning to trust that I do have little tidbits of knowledge to pass on to others to make their experiences a little easier. I love the moments where I know I can help.
So as with everything in life it is the little things that make life sweeter.
