Although I attempt to keep my identity anonymous on this blog, I want to share some personal midwifery-related news and thoughts.

I recently finished my apprenticeship. My last birth alongside my preceptor was August 4. A sweet waterbirth of a beautiful baby boy. I will be taking the NARM written exam in 3 days time. Keep me in your thoughts. I would love to pass it and not worry about it any longer!

It is a very bittersweet time of transition at the moment. I am so excited to finally be starting out on my own, something I have dreamed about for 8 years now! But, every time I think about no longer attending births with my former preceptor, I get weepy. It's a hard thing, moving on.
