I got home around 4:30 this morning.  I was attending a phenomenal birth.  Every aspect of this birth was absolutely incredible.  I feel so blessed to be a part of the birth experiences of so many women and their families.  As a doula, I am placed in a position of trust and control and it makes me humble every time.  I managed not to cry when the baby let out her first little sound this time, but my eyes still felt pricked and it was a tremendous effort not to bawl like a baby.  It was awesome!  My mom was a rock star and her husband and mother were incredibly supportive and were equally amazing in the roles they played.  Way to go guys!  You rock!!!
