I have a new appreciation for what birth doulas do. It takes a lot of stamina, strength and patience to walk alongside a mama in labor. I have been on the other side many times but today was my first time being on the helping side. I just watched my newest granddaughter come into the world. I am exhausted. So a big shout out to the birth doulas out there. And of course a big shout out to all you mamas doing this birth thing.
