Wherever I have lived, I always worked hard to bring doula trainings to my area. Why, some might ask (my husband included!)? Why would I want to bring in more competition? I guess my reasoning there would be, so birthing families in my community have more options about the doulas they are able to select from.
I often think about how hard it is to be a mother. It is hard! It is not fun. It is a lot of constant battles. It is a lot like herding sheep, catching greased pigs, feeding horses apples with your hands flat so you don't get bit, training monkeys, and taming lions, not necessarily in that order. I do love my job as a mother, don't think I don't, but man, it is so hard!
