This has been one of the best summers, I love the heat and freedom from rain.  I have had the good fortune to be given more clients than I usually take in the summer time.  Births come to me for different reasons, VBACs, or women that need a bit of extra care for anxieties around labor or birth.  Of course I take pretty much any woman that asks for my help, I am not one to discriminate.

I love that I instinctually know how to help a woman navigate the wonders of labor.  The crazy strong parts, the easy and manageable parts, and when I see her with her baby at the end of labor, admiring her new babe in her arms, I always have a genuine sense of  pride that it was me that they asked to be present, with them.

So although I have been busier than I thought, I thank you all so much for enticing me to be there – present – while you birthed your  baby.  I can’t imagine spending my summer any other way

 

until the next birth
