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.

Another year has gone by, marking 18 years of marriage for PreacherMan and I. Tonight is a dinner at a nice restaurant, possibly a movie (I Am Legend) and then home for some romance. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.
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.
