Mama Midwife Comes to Town

Yes, it has been a while my Beloveds. My month has been eaten up with teaching a class and taking a class. All has been compromised this month, my eating, my exercise, even my sleeping and my blogging. But I'm so excited that tomorrow fellow blogger Mama Midwife (Morag) is coming to my classroom. She is in town for her family vacation and we met up a few days ago. She agreed to come speak to my students about her recent graduation from midwifery school and her recent homebirth (and she's bringing the baby!). The students got wind of it already (I can't keep anything a secret from them) and are excited about hearing a woman speak about being a midwife and hearing a homebirth story. Louisa is such a gem. She is so excited about midwifery and has so many good ideas. She is a tremendous asset to the midwifery community. I love meeting my blogosphere family in person- always a treat.
PS: One of my students has already decided to have her baby at the local birth center that we tour as a part of our course clinical. I'm so excited. I warn all the students that I have a strong pregnancy mojo and someone gets pregnant in every class (it's true) that I teach.
