Almost six months ago, I had the distinct pleasure of meeting a doula at a DONA training. I have had this experience in the past, where I make eye contact with a person and I just feel like I know them. It's happened with 2 of my IC's and my doula partner. It's an eerie and beautiful thing when it happens....so I always listen to it!
