Birth is in my blood. It permeates my life. It makes me whole. I feel immense joy in assisting others in the birth of their babies. I got to do that in the wee early hours today. In paradise. I witnessed a family of 4 become a family of 5. A gorgeous, quick, blessed water birth here in St. John, USVI.
Birth is about intuition. About listening to the mother and listening within you to make the best choices. This birth was all about intuition. Going with the gut. Knowing all was well. And it was. A juicy 7 lb baby boy, a full pound bigger than his sisters!
I still have 6 days in paradise… I see some beach time in my immediate future!
WOW, no kidding 🙂
I enjoy it so much, I feel like I should be paying to have so much fun!
so beautiful…i wish i had known someone like you with any of my three births — each has some horrific moment to them and you make it an amazing experience! bless you for what you do sandi!!! xxoo
Thanks, Cyn… I think you would be a very cool chick to birth with 🙂
Proud of you and your beautiful and courageous Mothers. These babies are lucky to have both you and their mothers,
Thanks, Mom xoxo
There’s the Camel with your mom!!! xoxo
Nice! I am forwarding this to some friends overseas…do you have a website for this?
Hi Cindy… I don’t have a web site… people seem to just find me 🙂 They are welcome to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Love it! I’ve decided to start a CPM program… sure wish YOU were close enough to train with/under!!
How awesome! You’ll love it!! What program are you thinking of doing?
I haven’t officially decided! They all sound wonderful! Ancient Art of Midwifery Institute is high on the list just because of their excellent set up for distance learning along with lots of webinars, but I’m still comparing all the options! Any advice?
AAMI is wonderful. As is the Utah College of Midwifery. They also have a wonderful distance program.
What a blessing it is to experiece such a wealth of beauty and experience within a birth. A good friend Tina Cassidy describes her experience of birth in different areas of the world and in different cultures. How can we relate within this commonality we all have and experience?
