On trying to become a midwife...

Last weekend I was blessed to be able to attend a midwife skills class hosted by a local midwife. I learned so much and had a great time. It is nice to be with people who see the birth process as normal and not have to defend myself or my ideas on it.

We studied and practiced injections, blood draws, IV's, exams, and suturing. I am really looking forward to the next one in a couple of weeks hosted by Michigan Midwife's Association (MMA).

This is me getting Sterile Water Papules... They are used for back pain in labor (posterior babies), it is water injected in the skin (like a TB test) but since it is not PH balanced with the body it stings! (I did really well with the ones I gave to another woman in the class) :)
