In other exciting news, a doula friend and I have been invited to help present a workshop on non-pharmacologic pain relief in labor with some awesome CNM’s at this summer’s AAFP conference! Talk about amazing opportunity to connect with family physicians committed to holistic birth. I’m already filing away ideas on how to present what we do as doulas from a holistic perspective…and it begins with reinventing the language we use to communicate about pain and our ability to cope with it.
But in the meantime, back to studying go I. This has been my view lately…lots and lots of flashcards.
