Usually in our culture, when we show weakness, we lose respect from people. As your postpartum doula, I will very likely see you at some of your worst moments. I'll see you as you really are, and what you really look like when you've just gotten out of bed. But here's my promise to you: I promise I will respect you, your home, your relationships, and your choices because they are YOURS. My job is to support you without judgement. I won't judge you for what your hair looks like in the morning, and I won't judge what you want to eat for breakfast, even if it's three cupcakes. I won't push a particular parenting style on you, and I will support you in whatever way you choose to feed your baby. When you are feeling weak, unsure, and lacking confidence, I will show you respect and I will believe in you and your ability to move into your new role as a parent. You are awesome and you can do this!
