The Waterbirth of a Bouncing Baby Boy

Hello, Friends! I’m excited to introduce you to a set of clients this week, Lexee and Mike Halsmith, and their two little people, Reece and Brooks! I’ve so enjoyed serving and coming to love this refreshing family since we met almost two years ago, and I suspect I’ve learned as much from them as they[…]

Time, Pressure & Deadlines

Oh my goodness, the wildness continues! This last week was even wilder than the week I spent in Michigan, and was one filled with incredible pressure, deadlines, and an insatiable demand for time! First of all, I intended to use this week’s post to explain that “Midwife Life, Part Ten” is officially on hold. Wes, my amazing[…]

One Wild Week!

Oh my goodness, yes! Last week was wild! I flew to Michigan, celebrated Christmas with my family, attended a birth, fell ill, recovered, attended another birth, observed the tenth anniversary of my first husband’s death, fell ill again, flew home to Colorado, celebrated three years of marriage to my second husband, and learned that after sixteen months of[…]

Welcome, Friends!

  I shared this post on Facebook today to inform, to thank, and to invite. If you’ve come here from Facebook then you know already that I’m yet in the thick of attempting to attract the interest of a publisher for my memoir – the book I wrote describing my time as a homebirth midwifery[…]

Midwife Life, Part Seven: Oh, Baby!

Through my last post in this series I drew you into the nighttime life of a midwife as Emma’s labor began. Join me today and witness the miracle of two becoming three. “Emma? May I come in?” I’d arrived at the cozy, aging farmhouse – a quaint combination of trim and ramshackle, oozing with love and joy,[…]
