Is it when clients leave rave reviews? When clients return feedback forms full of compliments? Do we know we have done a good job when our contracts get extended? Or when our clients refer their friends and family to us?
Those are all fabulous ways to be sure we have done our jobs as doulas well, but none of them are what fill me with gratitude for my work. I wanted to get raw and talk about how I know each day, deep down that I am enough. What is it about this work that leaves me feeling energized even after a long overnight postpartum shift or a stop and start marathon birth?
It took me two days but I finally put it into words.
