If I was the doula at your birth, maybe you noticed my pink shoes.
They’re Crocs, in case you were wondering…and not really my typical style.
But the first time a mama was leaning on me, and her membranes ruptured, and amniotic fluid hit the floor with a splash, soaking my feet, I just smiled.
“Your water broke, Mama! How exciting! Things are moving right along, and you’re doing such a wonderful job!”
And I mentally applauded myself for my easily-rinseable choice in footwear.
