Midwifery, Mothering & Me: The Blog
This blog is named "Midwifery, Mothering & Me" because the words all start with M which is my favorite letter, because each of the topics are within my areas of expertise, and most importantly, because, hopefully, these subjects are appealing to you.
Entering my second decade as both a CNM and a NYS LM, my third decade as a mother and my sixth decade breathing Earth's oxygen rich atmosphere, I am certainly experienced (if not entrenched) in this blog's chosen topics.
Expertise and experience are enough to be able to blog on a subject; I certainly have those credentials. Hopefully, I also possess a point of view that will give you something to think about, an ability to communicate my passion enough to draw you in, and a hint of humor to keep you coming back.
So, let's get to it, shall we?
- Because birth is important.
- Because how we are born is important.
- Because health care is Important and quality maternal, newborn and women's health care is vitally important.
- Because midwifery is about being with woman; at its finest, midwifery is a profession of mindfulness.
- Because I LOVE being a midwife.
- Because gentle, steadfast, loving care of children is crucial to raise responsive and responsible adults.
- Because the term Mothering embodies such care (no matter the gender of the caregiver).
- Because children are our future, literally and metaphorically.
- Because Mothering Magazine is gone and it helped me so much as a new mother.
- Because so much of mothering, especially the early years. Is lonely, monotonous work
- Because I LOVE being a mother.
- Because we all have a Self, a Me.
- Because caring for Self is important.
- Because all of us need to stop, breathe, breathe a little deeper, and take the moment to experience our essence, our Self.
- Because midwifery and mothering are what I do, not who I am.
- Because, as corny as it sounds, I LOVE being me.
