Sade has been with me through two pregnancies, one unfortunately we lost at 5 months due to genetic complications. Sade, was there through all the emotional heartache and just a beam of light and rock to lean on in my time of despair. Shortly after I found out I was pregnant again with my beautiful daughter. I was elated.
As the pregnancy went on, I realized what a Doula actually was. Sade listened to me throughout my pregnancy all the up's and downs and encouraged me to feel pretty when I felt like a beast all the way up until my birth. She also spent a lot of time giving me much needed massages and stretches. She catered to me the entire pregnancy. No friend, not even my fiance really knew how to do that. However, the birth of my daughter was really where I am so grateful she was there.
We labored in the hospital for 36 gruesome hours, all of which Sade was apart of. She stayed overnight with me. She brought comforting oils, massaged my feet and neck, we made art together. It was such an amazing experience to have someone cater and relax me during the most exciting and scariest time of my life. She made my birth experience memorable and all about me.
Sade has been a friend and apart one of the most tragic moments in my life as well as the most important and beautiful milestones in my life (becoming a mother). She is a kind and beautiful spirit who truly knows how to be selfless. I want her around for all my pregnancies.
