Being a doula in a recession is a difficult place. I really love helping Moms but I also can't drive around without means. That's why the internet is such a great tool. It can even be interactive. The most difficult part is showing genuine interest to a mostly faceless post. It is hard to ask intimate info from a stranger especially discussing your baby and /or intimate funcutions of your body. I laugh sometimes because I am very comfortable relating about mucus plugs and breast changes.I have seen eyes widen and blink rapidly and then a sudden abandon of manners while the strangest questions come tumbling out! I certainly ask for it! There is no question that expectant and new moms have questions. A doula can work wonders in person but also online and on the phone.Just a reassuring tone and understanding person to listen to you can turn a crazy situation around.If you need to ask anything (about pregnancy/childbirth/resources/breastfeeding/bottlefeeding/diapers circumcision/how to talk to Drs/etc please call, write or run to me. I am willing to help in anyway I can. Today we should never risk babies and moms for any reason. Even if you can't pay anything; it's that important.
There is a challange afoot! I think I may just have to play in this one. http://www.sewlavie.com/p/welcome-to-retro-pillow-challenge.html. It is a retro pillow challange and If I can figure out how to grab the button I will show you where. Still learning :).
Hello, I have been rather busy. I opened an online store at Meylah Marketplace, It is a online handcrafts site and it is free with an option for marketplace that costs. When I start making money I will upgrade to premium,but for now it is what it is. So I have been gathering finished items, taking photos and learning how to open my store Kathy's Crafts. The address for my store is www.meylah.com/Kathyscrafts/ and is the only way to get to it until I go premium. I am also taking custom orders. If you have an Idea; ask I may now how to make it! I sew, refashion, knit, crochet and quilt.
