My necklace

Posted January 11th, 2013 in birth, Birth Doula in Fresno, Fresno birth, Fresno Birth Doula by Kathryn DiPalma

Sometimes labor can take awhile… sometimes labor can be really quick…and sometimes doulas even miss the birth because it happened SO fast. During our time together, there comes a point where mom and dad need some distraction, even if it’s only for a few minutes.  That is when I pull out my bowl full of colorful beads.  They get a chance to look through them and pick out a bead to add to my necklace.  I wear my necklace proudly and it is always close to my heart.  That is how I feel about all of the families that I have been blessed to work with.  They are apart of my life in a way that no one else is.  Their labor/delivery/birth is theirs and it doesn’t belong to anyone else.  And that is why I love the beads.  Each one is different, just as each birth is different.  I love all of my families and am proud to be on ‘the team’!!
