Anxiously Awaiting

With months passed since the last time i waited in the hospital for a baby to born i forgot how nerve racking it is to wait for the call from mommy and daddy saying we are in labor! only this time is different. the last 4 phone calls i received were friends telling me we are headed to the hospital with my response being i’ll be in the waiting room! and off i ran to sit for the rest of the day or night until the baby was born and i got to go in and see my new little Sergent nephew or niece. but today is different. today i anxiously await my first client calling me to say that she is in labor. she called me to ask a question earlier and now i realize that labor is near for her, nearer than i realized til today. and so i wait, nervous for that phone call that says come to my house i am in labor. i know my instincts will kick in but i am still nervous that i am not prepared to support her, after all this is my first time being a doula! but i am also excited, excited to help a women have the labor that she desires!  and so i wait!
