In September, Laura Macone, clinical social worker and therapist in Alexandria, came to an #ICAN meeting. When touching on the subject of #postpartumdepression she asked the question “could this be better?” This question stuck with our founder, Emily. Not just for the subject of #PPD but with all things related to motherhood, family, and even with our agency as a whole. Emily has chosen the word “better” to be our word for 2019 in an attempt to ask herself, our doulas, and our team, “could this be better?” It is a non judgmental question, which has always been one of the things we pride our agency on being. It isn’t saying things were, or are bad. It’s just asking, “could they be better?”
And what does that mean for our agency moving forward? If the answer is a simple, yes it could be, then how can we, not necessarily fix it, but change it in a way that is more efficient and overall, well, better? In the weeks to follow we will try to break this word down a little more and let you all in on how we intend to make our agency a more improved and overall better experience for everyone involved. Because we are in the business of helping families and we consider you all a part of our Doulas of Capitol Hill family. So lets make 2019 better for all of us!
