I have come full-circle with my very first client. It was a beautiful and rewarding experience caring for her and her baby, and I'm sad to say goodbye.
I met S and her family last summer. As a third time home-birther, she taught me many things about beginning my new practice, and she was the perfect client. She was healthy and strong, took good care of herself, and her baby grew perfectly. When it came time for our home visit, she even had John and I over for dinner. I loved getting to know S and her family, and I was honored to be their midwife, to nurture her as she nurtured me. Congratulations on your new little one.
