Doula Jenna "Families Reunion" 2012

As I supported families throughout 2011, I had the idea to host a gathering at the end of the year.  The main reason was to reconnect in person with the parents and babies that I had a chance to work with.  I was also excited for many of them to meet one another and for my own family, my husband and daughters, to get a chance to meet my clients as well.

On a Sunday in January, we met up at a local park (my favorite one) and enjoyed lots of yummy treats and a few hours of talking, laughing and playing together.  One of my dear friends and also a client of mine, graced us with her photography talent and captured some priceless shots.  This is something I plan to do annually.  If you are a doula, or anyone who works with people, for that matter, I encourage you to do the same.  We need to take advantage of reasons to gather and celebrate.  It's wonderful on so many levels.
