Operation Special Delivery
I am looking into attending a doula training workshop in the next couple of months, and one of the trainers sent me a link to this wonderful non-profit organization called Operation Special Delivery. Operation Special Delivery connects pregnant military wives (whose husbands are severely injured or deployed in faraway lands) with volunteer doulas. Then the doulas support and help the pregnant mothers through their pregnancies and stay by their side to support them through labor and delivery so they will not have to navigate that journey alone. What a beautiful thing! You must be a trained doula in order to participate, but you better believe I'll be volunteering as soon as I possibly can. I can't wait to help these women who selflessly give up their husbands for our benefit!
