What is Support?

Support is unconditional.

It is listening...

Not judging, not telling your own story.

Support is not offering advice...

It's offering a handkerchief, a touch, a hug...caring.

We are here to help you discover what you are feeling...

Not to make the feelings go away.

We are here to help you identify your options...

Not to tell you which options to choose.

We are here to discuss steps with you...

Not to take the steps for you.

We are here to help you discover your own strength...

Not to rescue you and leave you still vulnerable.

We are here to help you discover you and help yourself...

Not to take the responsibility for you.

We are here to help you learn to choose...

Not to make it unnecessary for you to make difficult choices.


As a group we read this poem together during my birth doula training and is a great reminder of what support should be!
