This workshop went so far beyond my expectations. I came with the idea of becoming more prepared to act as a doula, but as the training progressed, I began to see that a doula is so much more than “labor support”. Kyndal showed us how we will “hold the space” emotionally as well as physically, that we will not just “act” as doulas, but we will “be” as doulas and this changed my perception of the doula and of my life. Another thing that surprised me was the connection between the other women in the group. I felt so supported and loved by everyone in the group and the sisterhood that grew was so beautiful. This was a doula training that blew me out of the water emotionally and also prepared me practically to start BEING a doula.
