Changing the World… One Family at a Time : 

Changing the World… One Family at a Time Karen told her doula at 8 months she wished she had chosen a midwife instead of an OB. The doula found her a midwife. Karen had a beautiful peaceful labor. She chose to stay home. She had the most magical home birth experience she could ever have imagined.

Slide 11: 

Susan (a doula) wanted to affect change in her community. She spoke with local doulas who agreed with her it was time. She applied for a grant to start a birth network to inform local parents of their choices….and to teach about normal birth. She got the grant. Local agencies are now taking notice.

It Took Only One Day… : 

It Took Only One Day… It took only one day in January 1960 to change people’s views of their country when John F. Kennedy delivered his famous speech.

It took only one day to change the world, and that day was September 11th, 2001.

Slide 18: 

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, “who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?” Actually, who are you not to be? Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won’t feel insecure around you. … And as we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. Marianne Williamson

Slide 19: 

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." -Margaret Mead
