The tale of a fledgling midwife as she learns to fly. A bit of personal life, a bit of birth stories, a bit of everything, mostly.

Here be me little poppet, all dressed up for Talk Like A Pirate day. Arrgh! So, buckle yer swashes and swab the poop, and ye best be askin' for parlay unless ye be wantin' to be a rum swillin' miscreant what takes orders from a pirate!
I'm an early forties (advanced maternal age) mother of eight (grand multipara) who has had babies every way you can have them. Three in the hospital with docs and drugs; fourth baby at home with a lay midwife; fifth baby a c-section; sixth an HBAC waterbirth that my hubby caught, seventh an unattended home waterbirth and the eighth an emergency c-section. I'm a self-proclaimed birth junkie. I love movies and music, and I'm addicted to having babies and helping others have them too.
