A double birthday

Baby Nolan Steven was born December 7th, 2010; on my birthday! I couldn't have asked for a better birthday present than to be serving a family during their birth~

His mama was very strong and sacrificed her dream birth for his cesarean birth for breech presentation. Nolan was 7 pounds 1.5 ounces and 20" long and just as perfect as they imagined!

He immediately catured his parents hearts and they are beginning their new life as a family of three. Welcome to the world little one~

What a great day!!

WOW! I was totally floored by being nominated in the category Best Doula in North Texas by North Texas Child Magazine. This is such an honor!

I don't know how or who did the nominating, but I am very appreciative of them. It truly is an honor to be just nominated. I am up against two other doulas who are amazing:) One of us will win the title, but all of us are rockin' doulas who love what we do:) You can vote once and up to 1/3/2011.

"Maybe as we heal, share and support our views of birth can change as a whole. Women will realize they have choices and listen to their inner voices of what they can really experience. We can heal. We can let go of our fears. We can listen to our innate. We can experience the most amazing, unexplainable moments of our lives." ~BWF Blog

This quote is so powerful for me. It sums up all the different types of births I have personally experienced and experienced through my doula clients.
