Yup, that’s Anne Frye’s Holistic Midwifery, Volume 1. I’ve been wanting to add this volume to my library for a while, but with the upcoming midwifery study group fast approaching, I decided that now was the time.
I’d love nothing more than to cozy up with it tonight, but I have a post for Human Development due, and about a million flashcards to finish making for our first group of muscles in A&P lab. This is what everyone thinks about when they think of A&P–memorizing a million muscles, their origins, insertions, and actions.
And the truth?
I kinda like it. No…actually I really like it. I finally feel like I’m understanding how my body works, how it all fits together. And really, what can be more empowering than that?
I did draw a breath of relief upon receiving my second lecture mid-term back…92. I definitely left the exam knowing that there were at least 8 questions I wasn’t sure about my answers for…so it was a relief to not get all 8 wrong!
The rest of the term will focus on muscles in lab, and beginning the nervous system and spinal cord in lecture–we’ll continue with the brain next term. Not quite sure I can believe it’s almost over already. Two more weeks, then finals, then I head down to CA to spend some time with a dear friend due with her first babe in early April!
