Made of MOO and awesome

We watched The Business of Being Born in class today, which has completely re-awakened my desire to be all bad-ass with the nursing degree thing and take it all. the. way. to. midwifery. if I can just get into Union and get my lactation consultant degree and finish all these prerequisites so I can get into a nice nursing program to actually study the nursing and the delivering of the babies.

A friend of mine turned me onto these blog posts today.


Birth is awesome. I actually have more to say about it than just “moo” and “awesome” but I’m tired, and school starts early and pastry school starts even earlier for Miss Thing, so I’ll eventually just cut and paste the rant I wrote for class about medicalized, industrialized birth and why we need more midwives. Eventually. Till then, have some blog posts about moo and awesome.

    Traipsing through… was looking for someone I knew a good number of years ago, and thought I’d take a stab. Maybe get lucky :).

    Either or, good luck with school and the nursing degree… I hear it’s hell for the first five years, but then gets to a lesser level of such ;).

    I saw that movie not too long ago – thought it was great. I never did manage to write Little Miss’ birth story down – I wish I’d done it at the time, but I was a little bit busy.

    We had a fantastic OB/GYN and a great doula for our unmedicated hospital birth. Birth is, indeed, awesome.
