As the year is drawing to a close, I'm thinking back and remembering all the wonderful things that have happened in 2013. I have run four courses this year and trained another 36 doulas, which brings the total up to around 500 doulas all together. I have met some wonderful women during these courses and learnt so much from them and their experiences. I'm really looking forward to the next year and to meeting more of these amazing and caring aspiring doulas.
It was super exciting to have Penny Simkin here in May to run her 'When Survivors Give Birth' workshop and even more exciting to be invited to San Diego to take part in the Educator's workshop run by Penny and her colleague, Phyllis Klaus. I so look forward to meeting these two elders of the doula movement and learn from them and then be able to pass on their knowledge and wisdom to the women that come on my courses.
I look forward to meeting you on one of my courses!
