Healing Midwifery

A long time coming and sudden at the same time. I was looking for my passion while I was still in college. It took eleven years, a wonderful husband, moving across the country, a few bad jobs, two very strong careers and a mystical health crisis to find my path. Without the struggle I couldn't imagine the reward.

I've eaten meat today for the first time in eleven years. I interpret that as a sign that I am accepting new ways of being into my life. I also finished the first draft of my 13 essay application to Birthingway College of Midwifery. Another new way of being.

This is a blog about the journey of becoming a Midwife. The path is foggy and gray, but the ground is stable. I feel well supported and ready to walk. Please join me on this journey of Healing Midwifery.

What kind of meat was it?!

It was Bison- a good first meat because of it's high protein and leanness. You can see pics on Satchel's blog, which will be incorporated into Moe's Meats in the near future:

You are amazing!!! When framed as you have, everything you've experienced in the last 11 years makes perfect sense - it was all leading you here. I can't wait to watch/read as this journey unfolds for you.

Thanks for being such an incredible inspiration!
