I’m a midwife who’s been up all night for most of the last 30 years. Before that, I was editor of a small town newspaper. I left that job swearing I’d never face another 3 am deadline. Now I’m thinking what I really needed was a good night’s sleep. (And they say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over, expecting a different result.)
But I miss writing, so I’ve decided to launch a blog to record some of the brain activity that occurs between naps. I’m a little worried about exposing my tender underbelly to the pointy public, but have decided to dive in and see how we all get along.
This page will be where I get on my soapbox about things I encounter as a midwife and women’s health nurse practitioner.
- HPV vaccine & parents who disapprove
- Waterbirth. I do it, but it ain’t natural.
- Birth plans. And staying flexible.
