There's been a rumor in the birth/ doula/ pregnancy/ nonsense
realm that has been going around for a long time.
And, quite frankly, it isn't very nice.
Birth doulas leave.
They leave you.
They leave you because you want an epidural.
They leave because you and you're care provider decide a cesarean may be best.
They leave you because you changed your mind.
They leave you because are just over it and want some rest with pain medication.
They leave you because you're done waiting and want to induce.
They leave you because their agenda is more important than your desires.
We're not here to say it doesn't happen because sadly, it does.
But we're here to make a promise:
We're NOT LEAVING.
We don't care if you change your mind 1 million times.
We will be there.
By your side through your epidural,
through your cesarean,
through your induction,
through what you feel is best for you and your family.
Holding your hand, massaging your legs, and
giving you every ounce of moral support we can muster.
We don't have an agenda and we aren't activists.
We're not leaving.
(Unless of course you want us to, lol)
