"A doula is a non-medical assistant who provides various forms of non-medical support (physical, emotional, and informed choice) in the childbirth process."
I am attending a weekend workshop in Austin this weekend to start the process. This is something I've been thinking about doing for a long time, but the timing is finally starting to seem right. I am so passionate about the topics of pregnancy and childbirth and how they impact women (beyond the obvious). I am forever grateful to both of my doulas for the help, support and insight that they provided me during my pregnancy, labor, and postpartum experiences. Here's a picture of my doula with my sweet Indigo, just hours after her birth. She was amazing.
If you like chai tea (also called yogi tea), I found a great recipe here.
My mother-in-law recently told me the best and fastest way to cut a mango. Not only has this made my life easier, but my kids are eating more mangoes than ever, which they love. Here's a You Tube video that uses the technique that she taught me. Happy Mango Eating!
