Together my husband and I have 6 children (4 from my body).  I had the oldest in 2004 in the local hospital.  I was just 20 years old and had never really heard much about midwives so....... I did what everyone else did.  It was an easy, un-medicated birth but it didn't feel like the hospital was an appropriate place to give birth.  It felt very cold and controlled and un-natural.  So, when I found out I was expecting my second child in 2008 I found a midwife!  She lived and practiced about 2 hours from me but was still the closest midwife I could find.  She changed my life!  She was my age, beautiful, educated, experienced, and we grew to be great friends.  She helped my Clayton to come along in the comfort of my own home with 4 year old big sister, watching the whole thing.  It was such an amazing experience!  I knew before she left that night that I was being called to show other women what home birth was all about, so I started my training only 3 months later! Here we are, 2 more home births of my own, over 10 years down the road, and 7 years as a licensed midwife, I am still COMPLETELY in love with this crazy-beautiful, midwife life!
