As I work on my previously promised "why am I a doula" post - which will be I believe a two parter, who would have thunk that?! - I feel as though I must keep something going so you guys know I am still here! I tell you - life as a mom of two rambuntious toddlers balancing her childbirth education and doula work is tough. Can't say that I didn't have fair warning though.
"They" always tell you that is it.
But, something "they" don't always tell you is something that tends to ALWAYS come up in my doula and childbirth education work. This something is what the German refer to as "Zwischen." I could never write about this "in-between space" as eloquently as Jana Studelska, CPM/LM did in her article, "The Last Days of Pregnancy: A Place of In-Between," so I humbly share this word which carries remarkable meaning and Jana's prospective in how it relates to those last days of pregnancy with you.
Read this and remind yourself of the outstanding power you have growing inside you. Cherish every moment of this space.
