Yesterday morning I caught my first baby!! She will always hold a special place in my heart.
#babycatcher #midwiferyapprentice #firstcatch

Waiting on God’s timing so often feels like waiting for a baby to arrive. I often have this perfect idea of when I’d like things to happen in life “I’d like to be done with my apprenticeship by such and such date” “I’d like to be married by such and such age and have kids after however many years” but so often God’s timing is drastically different than my own, and I find myself waiting. Similarly at births I often look at the clock and think “if baby is born by such and such time then I can be home and in bed by this time” and my heart also aches for a mama who is desperate to meet her baby sooner rather than later. But babies have their own perfect timing, one that often does not correlate with my own (or their mamas) preferences. In those times of waiting upon God or a baby I can either fight the wait, feel frustrated wishing away time hoping that things would just hurry on up, or I can relax into and enjoy and trust the process. I’ve seen the way pushing my own timing in life or pushing the arrival of a baby can derail the process more so than even speeding it up. The more I learn about life and labor the more I surrender to God’s timing and the less I find myself fighting the process and the more I am able to enjoy the beauty of each moment.

I got a fancy new toy in the mail today! It's baby sized stethoscope! #midwiferyapprentice #homebirth

There is nothing like looking into the eyes of a laboring woman, so focused. I can see her determination and doubt. I can see her will power as she drifts into her own world to birth her baby. As she transitions, I can see her on the verge of losing it, ready to give up all in her eyes. But, she gets that last burst of energy and births her baby. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE WHAT I DO! Happy International Day of Midwives!!! #studentmidwife #midwiferyapprentice #soontobemidwife #almostdone #illbedonethisyear #icanseethelight #internationaldayofthemidwife #midwifery

A lot of midwifery care is patiently waiting. Babies and moms know just what to do, so sometimes we sit on our hands if we aren't using them. We watch, we listen, we protect the birthing environment as a normal place, and help you when it isn't. #midwives #havepatience #wellroundedmidwife #740birth #waterbirth #studentmidwife #midwiferyapprentice #placenta #doula #homebirth #columbusbirth #lickingcountybirth

Today we did prenatals in a Mennonite community and then went to visit an Amish community to pick up a whole lamb. I love learning all about their cultures. #midwiferyapprentice

NARM Bridge CEU's! I'm super excited about this one because the website required a professional title (which I don't have yet) but a simple email to the organization made it possible! #midwiferyapprentice

New reading material!! #midwiferyapprentice

To aspiring healers who are called to attend childbirth, I advise the following; first, midwife, heal thyself, Next, do no harm. Remember your own birth and forgive any trespasses upon your soul. And always, listen to the still, small voice within -- and the voices of countless mothers before who gave birth with dignity and as a natural expression of sexuality. Last, realize that mothers who give freebirth can connect with the Source of all creation and be the God-Us in action. ~ Jeannine Parvati Baker ❤❤❤ #shamanicmidwifery #birthissacred #womenarestrong #birthkeeper #birthguardian #jeannineparvatibaker #midwifery #midwiferyapprentice #studentmidwife #consciousconception

Every time something from my first midwife and dear friend, Lynda, gets passed on to me, I feel like she's whispering in my ear (or rather yelling loudly with a southern drawl) to keep studying. She was always my biggest supporter and *knew* I was going to be a midwife too. She was one of a kind. One tough cookie. A mama hen. Gentle and kind..stern when needed and oh so wise. She taught me to trust my body. She taught me how to be a mother. She believed in me. I was lucky to train with her for a short time before she passed away. I miss her so much. These books are filled with her notes. All these years later, it feels like she's pouring me a cup of herbal tea in one of her beautiful antique tea cups and we're discussing birth..just like we always had. Thank you for this beautiful gift, Robin. I can't stop crying flipping through them. ❤ .
