Precious teeny feet.
I love you, Daddy!
My midwife with #4 actually weighs her
delivered babies like this.
And I can't discount the parents. My passion isn't JUST for the babies, or the rush of the actual birth experience. It is to help make this awesome time in their family life something that is pleasant; to help make happy memories, you know?

Finally, I believe that pregnancy should be FUN! a new mommy and daddy shouldn't have to be on pins and needles for 8 months just waiting for something to go wrong; sometimes, I think women "talk" themselves into complications and compromised pregnancies.
My philosophy is that everything will be FINE. If something funky happens, we'll deal with it, but you can DO IT. And enjoy it. It only happens once. Each birth is different. Each birth is it's own unique experience.
I CAN'T WAIT to get started.
Have a rockin' week, ya'll!!
**Note ~ Wow! I just went to the Thursday Thirteen site to pick up the code and discovered that this is IT. The End. Final. The last Thursday Thirteen.
Come back and say Hi sometime, ok?
