around the web

I’ve posted links to awesome articles, photos and posts in the past, but I’m going to make it a weekly feature. This week, check out:

  • At Your Cervix: What I Wish I’d Learned About in School– great post about several things she wished she had learned in school about becoming a midwife. It’s not just about catching babies!
  • The Skeptical OB: VBAC birth story– Before you all flip out on me…this is an important story to share. In the natural birth world, there are not enough stories that talk about the things that can go wrong, despite everyone’s best efforts. What I mean by that is…it’s easy to become blinded by happy, perfect births. But the truth is, birth is not perfect. Anything can happen. At home, in the hospital… this story is just a testament to why being in the hospital for a VBAC is a good idea.
  • My OB Said What? You birthed like a warrior!– I’m pretty sure every mama wants to hear this! Even if she had a c/s.
  • With Woman, a Midwife on the Path: We Had Prepared– mixture of emotions surrounding birth center regulations and babies picking their birthdays, just in time before induction!
