So, I have three women right now who are having gloppies. This moon, called a "Blue Moon" seems to have pulled the mucous plugs right from women's cervices - women from 35 to 39 weeks along.
I'm sitting quietly, anticipating birth.
One client is delivering in the hospital. She is a VBAC and I am her monitrice.
Two others are midwifery clients.
I nap lots these days.
I have a new client that lives several hours away - a refugee from the midwife whose story I wrote about here. The Medical Board of California had other things to say about her. You can read those here. You can bet the truth is somewhere inbetween. I let the midwives in our area know what the MBC read what was being written so we could be meticulous with our own charting. It is definitely THE area most people are dinged for.
I think I have found the most amazing doctor ever. He is the midwife of doctors, so far. I reserve complete judgement until I work with him, but so far, he is just amazing and has helped clients in ways I could never imagine other doctors helping women. He spends HOURS with clients, speaks to them like human beings, reads through their charts, sits with them, gets to know them and stays with them in labor. He works in a solo practice because he can't find anyone else who practices the way he does. I'll let you know more after I do this hospital birth with him. I've heard great things from several other doulas, though.
Okay, off to work. Just thought I should post something after the circ post.
