Two for One!

I had my first back-to-back birthing experience this weekend…was called to a birth Friday evening, was with them through the wee hours of the morning as they welcomed their son into the world, and then headed across town to be with another sweet family as they had a triumphant VBAC and welcomed their second daughter on Saturday afternoon. I was with this second family for their first birth, and it was such a humbling and powerful moment to be with them as their daughter was born.

Both of these mamas were just so amazingly strong in spirit and body, and I came home last night feeling such a high of emotion.  I know there will be hard days as a midwifery student and as a midwife…but it’s worth it for days like this.
