Please share a story of one of your most memorable experiences as a doula.
My most memorable experience (as a doula) was being able to cut the cord of mom’s new addition. Mom labored for as long as she could until the baby started showing signs of distress. She ended up needing a cesarean and since I was her only support person, I was able to go with her for the cesarean. After the baby was born, I was able to cut lil’ man’s cord. It was a wonderful and memorable experience.
