Grinding to a Halt

Not that I've been the most prolific the last year anyway, but the murder of my former client and friend Silvia Frank has caused me to set aside the several posts I was working on, a couple that are almost completed. Suddenly, my perspective has shifted... perhaps for a short time, but I've called into question many parts of my life... from midwifery to writing and even my relationship with my children.

How best can I make an impact in the world?

I'm thinking about that.

It's in the little moments when you're not even trying Barb. I read your blog one time with your photos of a woman who was prepping for a c-section in bed until Dr. Biter came in and had her move. I think her baby may have been OP. Anyway, I remembered your post and in labor with my 6th I moved when the heartrate didn't change even with O2 on my left side. It made all the difference. Who knows, maybe I would have had a c-section? You post on this blog, and what you know and believe about birth makes an impact. I am sure those that know you personally and deal with you on a regular basis actually feel a greater impact. Your service to women is precious.

Understandable. This would be devastating for anyone. You are such a good and caring person, of course this will hurt and make you question...everything. Take some time to think and heal.

As a midwife, you help create mothers and families. As a mom, you are "the" essential person in someone's life. You are a woman as well who needs some time for herself. See you when you return....:)

Good to pause and reflect every so often, though I'm sorry the motivating factor was such a tragic event. Hope this can be a time of healing for you and am sure you will come out of this with a powerful sense of purpose. Can't wait to read about it. Many hugs!
