Down among the reeds and rushes, a baby boy was found

Posted on 2005.23.03 at 21:43
How I feel about it all: enthralledenthralled
Soundtrack: Paul Simon - Born at the Right Time (in my head)
Never been lonely, never been lied to,
never had to scuffle in fear, nothing denied to;
born at the instant church bells chime;
the whole world whispers, "born at the right time"


Welcome, Jacob Sirius! Congratulations to my patchfire and her family. *hugs*

He's just the cutest little guy. *tears up* And born at home, how much better of a deal can a baby get? I want one, wah!

Oh, and next time I pray for a birth, maybe I ought not to pray to the Norse gods. I expected Odin, and I got Thor. Jacob's birthday began with a kickass thunderstorm that got the county sirens going off, complete with a Tornado watch in a nearby county. All hail Thor, d00ds.

Oh, and #2: Partly due to being part of a birth done up right, but mostly because of advice and counsel from the wonderful midwife patchfire found, I've decided *drumroll* to finally go for what I've wanted to be since I was five years old. I've ordered the admissions packet from here. We shall see how things go.

BSN, schmeeSN. CPM, baybee.

*crosses fingers* RI isn't exactly friendly toward midwives. *forges on anyway*

*g* I rather like the Norse Gods. They Get Things Done.

Who knows how it will go. But I'm going to give it the old college try (no pun intended).

Welcome, Jacob!

Nothing like a birth done up right...nothing. Such a beautiful thing... Congratulations to Jacob and his family!

I actually tried to find the file for "Born at the Right Time", but couldn't. So I hummed it instead.

Yay! Yay to ALL of it!

You are going to be my midwife then, right? Once I get pregnant, of course, no this is not my way of announcing anything. Alas.

Well, if I'm a midwife, then it's entirely possible. Of course, if I'm not yet, I'll be glad to be your doula. :)

Oh, YES, that is what you should do!!! *bounces in excitement* YES! Go, you!

Yeah, going to echo everyone else in encouraging you to pursue the midwife thing. I think midwifery is a completely awesome profession and I wish you luck. How does it work, btw? Do you go into a sort of private practice, or do you work for hospitals but do homecalls?

Hopefully, I'd do homebirth. Hospital births aren't really what I'm interested in--I think I'd come away frustrated. RI isn't very friendly toward homebirth midwives, however, and they don't want Certified Nurse Midwives (which wouldn't be me) doing homebirths. Silly, silly RI. But. It's done, and often.

So yeah, homebirth, and we'll see how things progress. *g*

Hon. DO IT! You'll regret it forever if you don't. Eeeeeeeee! *bounces all over you*

And congratulations to you and Patchy!! I'm so glad everything went fabulously well. You guys ROCK!

Everything went near-perfect--up to the midwife arriving at the nick of time, and patchfire's parents getting there at the same time. The family that births together, and all. *GG*
