Refill That Jar!

Self-care is self-preservation. If I was your postpartum doula, then you should definitely know this by now. Rising above the pitch of newborn cries and peeking through the cobwebs of endless sleep-deprivation, I hope I said this loud enough and often enough for it to stick.

"You do what?!"

"You do what?!" Since making the decision to become a trained and certified postpartum doula I've heard this question a lot. In fact, if I had a nickel for every time someone asked me this, well, by now I'd have...$3.00. OK, still, that's like 60 people. And, for the most part, once I explain what it is a postpartum doula does, I receive positive responses. (Don't know what a postpartum doula does? Head on over here: www.motherlinenc.com/services.) But there are also some blank stares, side eye, and even skepticism when I say these words.
