yep! i'm still up to my ears in doula stuff. i have read and talked so much about childbirth that i am overloaded and everyone around me is too but i dont think i will be letting up any time soon (sorry) i am almost finished the first part of my course which means i soon have to cough up some dollars for the second part.
it's enormously exciting and terrifying in a good way and i fear i will become more and more ostracised by my hippy mentality which was always there but is encouraged every day by my increasing awareness of just how amazingly perfect nature's design is (and i know nature makes mistakes and i am not advocating irresponsibilty, just a greater faith in the scheme of things)
the whole doula thing sits nicely with my unashamed and total romanticism as well as with my no beating round the bush-ness. talking of beating round the bush....surely that could be twisted into some kind of birth related witticism?
if you would prefer not to talk to me about doula-ing, childbirth or other weird hippy stuff i'll be pleased to join you in some other conversation. just dont imagine i can initiate it!
