Busy Birthing

The past few months have been busier than usual. I attended 2 births in May, 2 births in June, 3 births in July, and 3 births in August. The last 3 births were back to back on a Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Each call was around 2 am as well. I was concerned about the births overlapping, but reality was a bit wilder than my imagination.

Thankfully all have been well even though there have been small and big problems. Most ladies have gotten the birth they wanted, but some had to adjust to what their labors became.

This summer has been a wild ride! Now I'm looking forward to the birth of a sweet friend's little one around Thanksgiving, but in the mean time, I'll be teaching several Lamaze sessions. I just finished a group set of classes with the nicest moms to be, and I can't wait to hear their birth stories in the coming weeks.
