Feeling Doula

My friend gave birth last Saturday night and I have been at their beck and call to succeed in breastfeeding. It's great to have this privilege of influencing a new Mom and I sort of wish there was someone who was like that with me.

Hopefully she becomes as attentive to someone else. It would be like passing an invisible torch of empowerment, where clueless moms as I was are given the confidence to trust our instincts and parent as only we can, and to not let our fears dictate our choices and decisions about this new life.
