This year has been a busy year for birthing and babies!! So we added a new page. If you have had your baby with us and want to be on this page, please email me a pic or let me know where to find it on FaceBook and I will put you on.
Thank you to all the families who ask me to be their midwife. It is a privilege to be a part of this sacred rite of passage.
Uninterrupted bonding with your newborn is simple. Tell your family and friends not to ASK to hold the baby, but rather to wait for you to offer."
Two successful home VBACs! Take back the power that was ALWAYS yours!!
Three of my favorite people (2 are my daughters and one feels like my child) were pregnant at the same time this year!!!
Arwen's second daughter, Lenora Pearl was first on August 23rd, weighing an even 6 lbs!
Austin Charles was next, home waterbirth on September 3rd, wieghing 9 lbs. 2 oz. Melinda was a goddess and Austin was Lorien's first catch!
Tarryn Hamish was born on 10/23/2010, weighing 6lbs, 6oz. Lorien was surrounded by most of her closest women friends for this home water birth.
This was the last home birth for 2010 and I have gotten their permission to share their amazing birth story. Here is the link to the tale in the mom's own words. This is Kelly and Tim's first baby and she birthed him into her own hands!! Awesome!!!
