You have chosen a career path that is both incredibly taxing and incredibly rewarding, and you are awesome at it.

So let’s hear it for the movers and the shakers, the rock stars, the keepers, the sisters, the pros and the newlas.
Have you been doula crushing on an amazing member of our community? Let’s do some #doulacrush shoutouts on social media this week to build each other up and bring back the happy.
“We cannot seek achievement for ourselves and forget about progress and prosperity for our community…Our ambitions must be broad enough to include the aspirations and needs of others, for their sakes and for our own.” — Cesar Chavez
