Why I Wear Rubber Shoes

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.
