Some birthing inspiration

Earlier this month I posted a link to part 1 of a blog by a mom who decided to birth naturally her second time around. Heather Armstrong, known as "Dooce" in the mama blog community, actually makes a full-time living from her blog. So you'd better believe that her writing is mighty entertaining. Dooce recently posted part 2 of her birth story, which is actually the birth story of someone else, just weeks before Dooce gave birth. Clearly, the experience left an impression on her, writing that witnessing her friend's birth left her “so inspired, so touched to be so close to something so primal and raw and vulnerable.” That pretty much sums up how we doulas feel every time we're in the presence of women like you! Meanwhile, Dooce leaves us hankering for part 3!
