This blog is an attempt to chronicle my journey as a midwife. I started blogging in my first year of practice, back in 2010. After that first year, I decided to keep on going. It is my goal for this to be a place of support and encouragemant for others on this path. Whenever I relay birth stories, please, keep in mind that all names and identifying details have been altered. I hope you can enjoy these experiences and that they may be beneficial to your learning.
This weekend, I was honored and blessed to have the opportunity to meet and spend time with several amazing midwives at an event in Florida. One of whom was Ina May Gaskin. It was truly a gift and I will be sharing part of my experience in an upcoming post, but I wanted to briefly discuss the content of these photographs. As part of her presentation, Ina May brought parts of her Safe Motherhood Quilt. To stand up with her, and other midwives, to hold and bear witness to this powerful project was intense, moving and inspiring. As a midwife, I feel that guarding the health and safety of Mothers is an integral part of my duties. It is a responsibility that I take very seriously and physically holding this quilt resonated in my bones.
