Why Meet a Doula in Bowling Green KY? So you may have heard that My Sunshine Birth Services has been having very successful “Meet the Doulas” events in downtown Bowling Green at Spencer’s Coffee. People are jumping at the opportunity and have always wanted to meet their neighborhood Doulas, but some families are wondering, “why”?
The My Sunshine Birth Doulas have been busy this past week with training, workshops, and networking. I’ll be doing a series of blog entries to let you know about all the adventures we’ve been on. Here is our first stop Nashville’s New Freestanding Birth Center.
First some of us went to the new Baby+Co Boutique Birth Center in Nashville TN to meet with the ladies behind the scenes, tour the facilities and learn about their practices.
I’m so excited to see where things go from here with My Sunshine Birth Services. Sunday we sponsored our first Maternity, Baby & Kids Expo and debuted our first ever promo film by Kalimana Film Stories (watch at bottom of this post). We met a lot of people and new business owners. I want to share with you some of the photos from yesterday and share with you our new film. I’m also excited to say that we added a new, but very familiar, doula to our network.

There is also a website that Les and several other Dad’s are featured on, and you can see it at www.kybreastfeeds.org. There is a brochure that has been sent out to some of KY’s delivering Hospitals and a TV & Radio spot (Brochure and TV spot Seen HERE). All of this is mentioned in the article. Please take a minute to read it. There is also an interview with a Bowling Green Dad, Lam Vo
This morning on my calendar I had all morning set aside for cleaning house (which it desperately needed). Every time I tried to set Marley Ann Down to clean she got upset. I strapped her on with the Boba carrier and started to do dishes. Then she wanted to nurse, and that turned into a nursing marathon. Suddenly the morning was gone and the house was still a disaster.
I felt a very negative energy come over me. With every dirty dish or piece of trash or scattered mail I saw I started getting upset and placing blame.
Who left THAT there? Why is this here? Why could Marley not have played on her own this morning? Then I left.
