Important Announcement from Doula Surround

To EVERYONE PLEASE READ: I am sad to announce that I can not offer my doula services any longer. ***tears*** My health just won't allow the stamina that is required of a birth doula. :( I am being tested for rheumatoid arthritis... or it may be Fibromyalgia that I am suffering from. What I really want to do is become a CBE (Childbirth Educator), so maybe, just maybe, I won't be out of the birth loop entirely. I love all things birth/babies/breastfeeding & will not ever cut it out of my life 100%! I am keeping my page up here and on Facebook, to offer great articles that I find.

I have been privileged to have witnessed 10 vaginal births of healthy babies that were breastfed!! That will always stick with me. I am in contact with over half of those families now. I am devastated, pretty much, & it has taken a long time to come to this conclusion. I love all the people that I have met along the way.

Kelly K, CD (CBI)

Hugs! That must have been a tough decision. I think being a CBE is a great thing to be. I am both a CBE and a doula and love both! Certainly a CBE is less physically demanding. :) But just as rewarding.
