A Happy Doula

A doula is happy when she goes to the home of a client who deeply desires a fully natural birth, and the  powerful mama prints out her birth plan and tells her doula, smiling, that her OB signed off on it without an issue.

The happy doula then remembers that wonderful things do happen in the world and there are marvelous care providers out there who respect their patients' decisions.  And she breathes a sigh of relief, knowing that this natural hospital birth will go down without a fight (unless it truly need not be natural).

You know, how birth is supposed to be.  No fighting.  Just, birth.

This girl is a happy doula tonight.
