Big Shifts and Life Changes


Wow! What a whirlwind and exciting last two weeks! I have worked with two postpartum families and attended my first birth this month! I am on cloud nine and so excited to continue and do more of this work!


This journey all started for me back in March when an experience pointed me in the direction of working to support families during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. Here we are on the cusp of August and I have two clients served and in the books. I’m in awe at the blossoming of this new career and the connections and new relationships fostered through this new business.


To be given the honor of bearing witness and holding space for families during birth and in those first weeks postpartum is a sacred time that I feel very special to have been included in. For families to welcome you into their lives and intimate spaces in order to support them through life’s greatest transition is a responsibility that I hold very close to my heart. For my husband and I, the early weeks after our first child was born were solemn and transformative as we soaked up every moment getting to know our son and bond as a family.


To be welcomed into that “birth bubble” with these two families is so special to me and I am incredibly grateful they chose me and welcomed me into their birth and newborn experiences. I have learned to embrace my strengths and my own intuitions as a mother and a doula. I have learned skills as a caretaker that are invaluable to pass on to my clients. I have practiced holding space and listening during the birth process and learning my role in all stages of bringing a child earth side. I have surrounded myself with a tribe of women that are skilled birth workers and specialists that I can use as resources for myself and my clients.

The energy within a woman during these sacred moments as she bridges the remarkable change from woman to mother is potent. Sometimes there just aren’t words to describe the magic which is birth. Sometimes there just are no words to explain the peace and the love one feels with a baby swaddled and nestled in their arms. Their freshness. Their newness. Their complete innocence and fragile dependence on their mother and the adults around them to care for them and keep them safe.


So much love. So many emotions to process, things to learn, revisit, explore, research, and more. This journey I am on feels good....really good. Like, to the core good. It hits differently that my other careers and truly makes me feel like I am making a difference in the lives of others and that I am doing my part to make the world a little bit more beautiful.

Peace and Love,


Robin
