Yeah Baby!

I spent the weekend at my Doula training. I can't even tell you how incredibly excited I am. It was the most educational, informative (not the same thing as educational), nurturing experience of my life. 

And now I am ready to be your Doula!

In fact I need to attend and assist two more births for my certification. If you are pregnant and due in the next several months and would like me to be your doula for free! And you preferrably live in Utah or Salt Lake Counties. Please contact me: aprilallyear365@gmail.com
(Also note that once I have my two guinea pigs :) I will still have significantly discounted rates for the next little while so please contact me!)

It does not matter if you are planning a natural non-medicated birth or an epidural, or a planned c-section. I am there to give you physical, emotional, and informational support throughout your entire labor and delivery. When you are in labor you are in an intensely vulnerable state (Even if your legs are numb) and having another person to be your advocate, someone to make sure you are being taken care of is such an wonderful thing.

Ultimately, I am there to help you and your spouse have a Positive birth experience, no matter the circumstances, expected or unexpected.

I have to say, I just plain love women! There is such a deep connection and bond I find with ladies, I find kindred spirits in so many different lovely women all the time.

I feel so lucky.


p.s. I am in the process of creating a website that will have information on my Doula and Hypnobirthing services along with education about herbs for the health of you and your children. That way those who don't want to read about it on this blog won't feel bombarded. 
This will continue to be a light-hearted lifestyle blog.

Thank you for reading my friends, I really do appreciate you sticking with me.

  2. Way to go April, you are going to be the best doula! Whenever we have another kid and you are my doula, if it's a girl, I will name her doula after you. Just like Luke's sister did from Gilmore Girls.
