I am so close to being a certified doula, it's scary. I have until April 26th to get all my crap together and get it in the mail. I AM SO CLOSE! I need one more eval from a doc (fingers crossed for my client who is having a baby soon, I hope, she was due last Tuesday), and
I have to write a research paper.
"The Purpose and Value of Labor Support." I have taken the final, written the other 3papers, read the books, gone to hours and hours and hours of class, gone to birth after birth, etc etc etc, and I am ALMOST DONE!
So, I here and struggling with writer's block. EVERY doula who certifies through DONA (Doulas of North America) has to write the SAME paper, on the SAME topic. How, then, do I write something original, well-researched and intelligent without sounding like EVERYONE ELSE???
I'm thinking about starting out with "Doulas kick arse and here's why:"
It's attention-grabbing, right?? I mean, you'd be curious and read on, right?
Sigh. Two long years of all this, and I'm stuck on a stupid paper.
In other news, Derek and I were "fake" fighting (which we do ALL THE TIME) today in the car and Henry FREAKED OUT, started yelling, "NO MAMA! BE QUIET! BE NICE TO DADDY!"
I am offended by this, of course. How QUICKLY my little son abandons the mother who gave him life, and sides with his dad.
Again, I say, GRRRRR.
At least Spencer still needs me.
Okay, no more messing around. I have got to get this paper written.
I wonder if I could buy one off the internet. ;) (Kidding, only kidding.)
