As a postpartum doula, I spend plenty of time with awesome new moms and dads who haven't quite discovered their own inner-awesomeness (that's totally a word, trust me). These are parents with great instincts and unlimited amounts of love for their new baby, yet they are often lacking confidence. One of the things I love about my job is helping these families discover their own parenting strengths and build their confidence. Because before I was a postpartum doula, I was also a new mom, standing where they are, questioning my own instincts and abilities.
