Sometimes I find myself in a position to write a profile on myself and my midwifery. This is Soooo challenging . How can I say what midwifery really means to me in a profile?
Midwifery is the rhythm of my life , the beating of my heart; it runs through my deepest veins. Sometimes it runs through my veins as naturally as smoothly as our unconscious sleeping breaths. Other times, as naturally, it pounds with passion, coloring my feelings in a way I cannot contain.
The mystery of the feminine, of birth, is more engaging than any author you will ever read, any movie that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Who will this child be? How will he change his world. How will this mama be affected - will it be as a gentle breeze over grass, or as a storm can forge a new river through the face of the earth?
What can I bring to these families?
And will I actually know, be aware of, the ways in which each woman has changed my life?
All I really know is that each woman, mother, and midwife that I get to work with will leave her lovely marks on me. I am So very grateful that midwifery is my calling.
