Thank you to all of the sweet mamas who have sent cards and letters this year. I absolutely LOVE reading your highlights from the year and seeing the photos of your beautiful, growing families.
2016 was an exciting year with a lot of big things. In addition to starting a home birth practice and witnessing over 30 amazingly beautiful births, we moved out of our tiny home, renovated a pop-up camper, explored New England with its beautiful fall leaves, assisted a midwife in Dallas for 4 weeks, and worked (and vacationed!) in Belize. I am so thankful for the many lessons learned and memories shared with dear friends and family this year.
Here are my birth statistics from this past year:
- Total Births Attended: 34
- Primary Births: 25
- Furthest Distance Traveled for a Birth: Belize (1054 miles)
- Fastest Birth: 1 minute after arrival
- Intrapartum (During Labor) – 0
- Postpartum (After the Birth) – 1
- Boys: 13
- Girls: 21
- Most Popular Birth Day: Monday & Thursday
To My Clients,
It has been such an honor to be a part of your births this year. I carry with me special moments and memories from each and every birth. Thank you for allowing me the blessing of caring for you and your precious babies. I pray your families experience great health, abundant laughter, and God's richest blessings in 2017.
