I Must Be Dreaming...

Been drop dead busy of late. I'm preparing my presentation for the Midwives Alliance of North American (MANA) conference- remember, if you'll be there, come say hi. This month is also Josiah's first birthday (can you believe it???) He's been such a fussy little spider monkey these days with teething and all. I'll post some pictures soon. I also have another presentation on birth a week after the MANA one on 'The African-American Experience of Birth" (I have no clue what to talk about for that one!) . I'm teaching my first NRP course tomorrow and don't feel prepared AT ALL. This month is also my wedding anniversary so I'll have to think of something special to do for my darling husband. In the mean time my business is busy, busy, busy. I need to sit, catch my breath, and think about birth and what messages I want to relay about it. I changed my website to focus on holistic birth and birth practices. I've been studying the websites of other speakers/presenters to get ideas. Bear with me Dear Readers. I've got lots to say, just no time to say it! On the other hand, I'm starting to live the life of my dreams...

I am hoping to make it to the Doula conference. But, it really depends on if I can spare the money. If I get in I will come by and say hello.

Great! I look forward to meeting the Rogue in person!

It is hard to believe Josiah is turning one already! Tell him Happy Birthday for me!

Dawn,
May I post your essay?

Sure, especially on Saturday when I get the rights back to it. You can post a link now, and people can comment. I have full rights to it on Saturday and as long as you say it was in the Kansas City Star, you're free to use it.


Blessings!

Oh,
I forgot, sometimes the Star makes it hard to see later as they archive things. If it disappears, let me know and I'll send you a copy by email.

Are you still working on your web page and business? I'll be interested to see what comes of it all. I am an older mom, but am keeping your consultation in mind to let younger women know so they can plan their births better than I did mine! Since I'm in a church, there may be a day when I mentor younger women...and your resource will be a good one to have!

Dear Anon,
I've changed the focus of my business from individual consulting to corporate consulting. You can view the site by clicking on the link on the blog.

You can still get the whole column online, so you can copy it and use it...
Just reference the KC Star when you use it. Thank you!
