September 11th On The Labor And Delivery Unit

Posted on: August 31, 2009

I can only imagine what it will be like on the labor and delivery unit on September 11 th. I will be a part of it since I am on call that day as a volunteer doula. I do not receive any payment for my services as of yet. That is what it means to be a volunteer. It is the stepping stone of a wonderful new beginning. The month of September will be very busy. The plans for the mother/baby/doula reunion are coming along nicely. I have all the items that I will be taking with me as raffle prizes. I can’t wait to meet the new mothers and babies. I can’t wait to hear their birth stories and labor doula experiences. I wonder if last year’s September 11 th baby will be there. September 11th will be a time of remembering what happened to our Nation on that day. It will be a time of reflection. A time of laughter. A time of tears. A time of healing. A time to recovery. A time of new beginnings in the birth of a baby. Life goes on……….
