Birth Plan

Sometimes the hardest stories to tell are the most important to hear.

Sometimes the hardest stories to tell are the most important to hear.

I was approached some time ago about a story. A really dramatic, hard to hear story. I sat with it a while, honored to have been chosen to hold her story with her and thinking about the impact that her words had on me. 

Then I thought about the impact that it could have on you. How much strength do you have in your intuition, in knowing and understanding your body's needs and your baby's? 

Our whole purpose at Tulsa Family Doulas is to increase confidence in birth and in parenting for every family we serve, and we do that by providing tangible support and skills through every service we offer. 

And we tell stories like this, because they are important to read. She has given full permission, but requested anonymity. 

A Vision Statment - It Works In Birth Just Like It Does In Business

A Vision Statment - It Works In Birth Just Like It Does In Business

A vision statement works in birth just like it works in business. I have just recently gone through the interestingly uncomfortable process of honing in on my vision statement for my agency, Tulsa Family Doulas. Anyone who has ever worked on a vision statement for their company knows that the words of the statement will not, in and of themselves, make any business successful. Just like our birth doula clients learn that writing out their birth plan does not guarantee them their ideal birth.
