Yesterday was the anniversary of the very first birth that I attended as a doula all on my own (without my mentor). It is not the anniversary of the first birth I ever attended, but it was my first home birth. It was also the first time I ever held a person who had only been in the world for a few minutes.
In honor of my milestone, I invite you to read the birth story from my perspective, through my very new doula eyes, as I wrote it a year ago: My First Solo Birth as a Doula
