I have a January client! I drove 2 hours to her house, spent a couple hours with her and her hubby, and was hired to attend her birth and help her through it. I ended up having to spend the night away from home since I got caught in a snowstorm (the 50 kms/hr on the highway kind of storm), but it was worth it. She is a VBAC, so this is especially wonderful. I am a 2VBAC myself, so this is near and dear to my heart. New Brunswick, especially this area, has a high cesarean rate. VBACs are beginning to be encouraged, but elective cesareans are still very normal - which doesn't necessarily mean healthy.
I am honoured and so excited to be asked to be this woman's doula. I can't wait!
