Birth Center

UPDATE:The website for the new center is:
Thanks, Candace!

One of the errands I had to go to Saturday was actually my first appointment with the midwife. This is the same wonderful lady who delivered Lauryn here at our house (in my bathtub actually, but that is a story for another day). I had forgotten just how much I really like this woman. Not only is she incredibly knowledgeable about the entire pregnancy, labor, delivery, recovery process, she trusts the mommy. She actually listens to you, and doesn't treat any concern or belief you have as silly. She works with you so that you can have the best pregnancy and delivery as possible.

She also has a new birth center! Now we plan on having this baby at home as well, but if it weren't for having to leave my house, I sure wouldn't mind having this baby there. It looks like a spa room. And, for those who are nervous about not having a baby at a hospital, the new center is at Babcock and Wurzback, just about a minute and a half from 4-5 hospitals, and right across the street from a fire department.

Next time I go, I'll ask Janet if I can take pictures for the blog. And maybe some time I'll get around to posting that birth story.

I'm so happy for Janet; I know she was sad about having to close the other one. Could you give me the exact address? Last year on Kert's birthday I took her a cake because of all the wonderful things she did for me when I had to be taken to the emergency room. I'd love to surprise her again.

I could sing the praises of Janet for years and years -- she was such an inflential person in my life in many ways, including my motivation to someday apprentice in midwifery (if my kids will ever not need me for 2 minutes in a row).
