    I felt very comforted by your blog.
    I felt like I was reading my own story (regarding breastfeeding).
    Thank you for sharing you’re experience. It has helped me and given me encouragement to begin weaning more actively and not feel guilty.
    I’m lucky to have breastfed my 15 month old exclusively, but I just cannot endure these chronic plugged ducts anymore.
    Thank you so much!

    Greetings, I am just starting my midwifery Homebirth service in northern California and am building a weebly website. I have over 220 births as a primary midwife but I lost all my birth photos due to a leaky storage unit we rented. It destroyed a lot of precious belongings. In sending you this message to ask if I may use your must have the Courage of a Lion pic on my website. I will happily credit you for the image! Are you open to that? I May like to use other material from your website as well for educational purposes and again, I would credit you always
    I will wait to hear back from you
    Blessings and light

    I am a hopeful future midwife (currently in nursing school) and I recently came across your blog and wow, I just love it!!! Thank you so much for taking the time to educate strangers about midwifery and birth. I especially loved how you have included how to support women in who are giving birth in a hospital setting, and your posts about the different stages of labor. Keep up the amazing work, the time you spend blogging is so appreciated! I would love to see a future post about how midwives and doulas interact during a homebirth setting, or a post on water a water birth is like from a midwives standpoint (how they interact with the mother, and check on her labor). Anywho love this blog!!!
    Kind regards,
    Jauni May

    Hi there,

    Do you work in the Austin area? I can’t seem to find where you are located on this site.
