Good Afternoon All,
Today I talked with Christi Stoltzfus of BellissiMama Doula Services in Lancaster County, PA. She is a certified doula through Birth Arts International that has had the pleasure of supporting women and their families since 2011. She offers antepartum, birth, and postpartum support as well as in-hospital care for those first delicate days after delivery. On top of being a doula, she works as a home birth midwife's assistant serving the local Amish & plain community, has homeschooled for 14 years, and is married to her high school sweetheart.
Hope you enjoy!

Book Recommendation: Birthing from Within by Pam England
Favorite Quote: "The most difficult part of birth is the first year afterwards. It is the year of travail – when the soul of a woman must birth the mother inside her. The emotional labour pains of becoming a mother are far greater than the physical pangs of birth; these are the growing surges of your heart as it pushes out selfishness and fear and makes room for sacrifice and love. It is a private and silent birth of the soul, but it is no less holy than the event of childbirth, perhaps it is even more sacred." by Joy Kusek
