Yesterday in the early morning hours, the city of San Francisco welcomed a new citizen !
Say hello to baby Miles! He is his parents’ prize after a very challenging labor . May this beautiful family grow in love and light together . May this son ever be the delight of his parents’ life. May he grow to be strong, loving, and brilliant; fed by the love so deeply felt by these parents for their first born child !
And may we, his community strive to be worthy of this sparking new life!
Doula means servant .
How does one serve with dignity?
Under patriarchy , these concepts seem to oppose each other.
Free from that affliction – it’s possible to see how compassionate humans serve each other every day. Taking turns;giving and receiving.
It’s no step down to serve – for tomorrow it may be you in need , and grateful that someone knelt a bit – or put up with much – for you .

Samsarah Morgan , Certified Trainer
It’s the particular insanity of women who desire natural childbirth – the insanity that pulls you to dive into the sun – and show no burn. The yearning to stare God in the eye and see all there is, the rage, joy , peace ,healing ,and wonder.
To do all this With a trust that at the end of this journey – all will be well – she will be more than she’s ever been before, and that her newborn will be the most beautiful vision her eyes have ever seen.
I am such a woman’s servant.
