I DID IT

This morning, I attended my last birth as an apprentice. I did it!!!

VBAC birth, lovely and sweet, no big horrible things, just birth.

I'm a "real" midwife now! What a wonderful feeling of accomplishment!

I owe God thanks for giving me the strength and perseverance to finish this long and sometimes difficult road

I owe my family thanks for their unwavering support, encouragement and willingness to give up their wife and mother for days at a time to serve other families.

I owe Faerylady thanks for being willing to stick with me even when I was an "adolescent apprentice" and downright unbearable at times. And also for long-distance apprenticing me which wasn't easy on her, her practice or her car!

I'm done!!!!!

I'm planning on taking the NARM in August, so I just have to get all that paperwork in order and study, study, study!

Don't worry, constant readers, there will be plenty of midwifey goodness in the future. I intend on continuing this blog.

I just found your blog...and at the perfect time too! I've got about a year left of apprenticing and after reading your post, have a little more motivation to keep plugging along.
Even though I don't know you, I'm celebrating your huge accomplishment.
Congratulations!
