I got an email from my doula mentor asking if I would take a pro-bono doula client, due 10/15... which is the day I went into labor with Chim. And boy, I do love October babies! I was able to arrange child care for both kids; Chim can go any day at her pre-school and since Badger will be turning one that month, we can leave him on a drop-off basis too!
The bad news is I haven't been able to reach the momma! Three phone calls, no answer!
Oh, and I'm going to talk to my mentor about joining her doula group. I think that would be the way to go, for me right now. I need direction and support, and I feel good about being associated with her and the other doulas from her group that I've met.
