First birth as a doula!

Got the call just as I was going to bed (late) last night. Mom had a previous very fast labor, and this one followed suit! I actually spent more time with them after the birth than I did during labor. Everything went well and it was all in all a great first birth for me. The dad didn't want to cut the cord, so I got to!

How exciting! I think that would be a really cool thing to do... I don't think I have the right kind of personality to do it, but it would be cool nonetheless!

That's awesome!! My client is due today, her 40w midwife appt is tomorrow. I'm very excited and nervous though I've been a doula three times before, but those were friends.

Yeah, this birth was a friend who I didn't charge.
