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.

Baby boy, 8# 6oz was born at 5:56 PM last night. First baby of the year for me. I'm pretty pleased with myself that I accurately predicted this mom would not go to her due date (the baby was engaged by 35 weeks.) Story to follow if permission is given.
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.
