The year started off with a whirlwind of events and many positive changes. I haven’t had as much time to blog and am about to go back on-call for some births. I’m reminded to slow down, connect with nature, practice self-care, nourish myself and my family with wholesome foods and be more present, especially with my boys. Filling my cup allows me to better serve others, not only as a doula, but as a mother, daughter, sister, wife and friend. Giving to ourselves recharges us so we are more peaceful, compassionate, and energized. When our cups are empty, our resources are depleted and we feel weighed down, unmotivated and discontent. When our cups are full, we have something to give. I look forward to sharing more soon… stay tuned!
