When I was contacted by my sweet, amazing prior client and military wife about driving to Jacksonville to attend the birth of their son, I was so overwhelmed. It was not going to be a short distance to drive and where they live, they could have found many other doulas to do the job. Since I have moved from Wilmington and most all of my clients were there, I have not been able to attend second births of these women. This was going to be a first! Last week when she called to tell me she went to the Dr. was was 4 cm and 80% effaced, I panicked I was not going to be able to get there in time for it to be worth their money to hire me. After giving her the option of backing out of the deal, she said no. She would rather have me there for a short time than not at all. Wow, that was a humbling moment for me. I love this couple for many reasons, so it was a joy to be there for their son's birth. I ended up getting there in plenty of time and everything worked out beautifully. It was one of the most meaningful Mother's Days I have ever had. God has been so great to me that so many of my clients become my friends. She sure is one I pray will be a life long friend!
