As many of you know, I'm headed to The Farm tomorrow to learn more about midwifery assistant-ing and I'm so excited I can't even think straight enough to type coherently.
I made a rash and crazy decision in February that I wanted to learn from Ina May... I figured that she's been doing this for awhile and knows quite a bit about midwifing, but I also thought that the time of her teaching might be growing a bit short. So I drafted up an application and decided that YES I would go, even if midwifery isn't necessarily on my ten year plan, so long as they would take me.
Either I'm a compelling applicant, or the admission criteria are soft, or a stroke of luck has landed upon me. Regardless, I'm on my way. I've been packed for a week, and have two packing lists. They have mostly the same items on them, because I'm not a very creative packer.
I am determined to go sans checked bag, despite the fact that I'm bringing:
- a babydoll
- a cushion
- a towel
- a couple of textbooks
- a blood pressure cuff and stethoscope
- a heaping helping of snacks
- a yoga mat
Yep, it's all in a roll-aboard and a small backpack. Here's thanks to five years of traveling back and forth across the country like a ping-pong ball... guess I learned a few things.
I hope to blog often, and will also be sharing some pix on Instagram, so
I'm one of those people who loves making your life easier (and I believe in you). I am an experienced registered prenatal yoga teacher and a lactation educator.
