Three years ago, I started a small, business, Local Care Midwifery, in Troy, NY. I provide health care for women and attend planned home births. As a NY Licensed Midwife, I get to care for woman of all ages. As my own employer, I also get to see sweet babies born at home, two to four times a month. I love my work!
My birthday is in the middle of the summer, July eleventh. It has always been one of my favorite days. The season, the month, the day, even the number 7/11, just seem right. On my birthday, people wish me well, some give me presents. I get to celebrate being born. There is cake. I love my birthday!
When people ask what I am doing for my birthday, I smile and say, ‘maybe catching a a baby’. Since starting Local Care Midwifery, every year on my birthday, I have attended a home birth of a sweet baby. Three years running, a beautiful baby girl has been born, at home, into loving hands and open hearts on my birthday. Both personally and professionally, I can attest that July 11 is a great day to be born. I love sharing my birthday!
Thank you, Baby Peri, for letting me share this birth day with you.
May all babies be born into loving hands
