This was written by one of my doula trainees (who actually has YEARS of experience in the birth world!) after a beautiful birth she was honored to be present at…


We dance when all the world is asleep
Down long corridors,
Hall ways lit by moonlight.
The full moon our only witness
To this soundless dance.

The waves the metronome we dance to,
Calling him to come
To be with us here.
We love you so
Come dance with us little one.

Come see the moon and stars
Waiting, too
Silently waiting
For this night of nights
This night chosen from all eternity for your birth.
