September Birth Vacation

Wednesday, October 28th, 2009


I keep telling myself to plan some time off but it doesn’t seem to happen…I meet someone who I think would be so fun to birth with…or who needs a healing birth…or who I’ve birthed or miscarried with before and know I’d be disappointed if we didn’t get to be together for this baby.

Knowing that there will never be the perfect birth free window I just need to plan for vacation time for my family and myself. I’ve decided that I won’t be accepting any September births so for those that have control of their future children….please wait for me.

cookieI wanted to do another cookie party but there are sooo many October babies that want parties and with my oldest daughter/cookie helper gone on a photo trip…. its just not feasible at this time.   

However… I will be in my office Friday, October 30th (unless I’m at a birth) from 9:00 to 4:00 …so if anyone wants to drop by and show me costumes or kids I’d love to see you.

Maybe we’ll have cookies in January….

I’ve had several families interested in placenta encapsulation recently and I wanted to pass on some links provided by them. The first is the humorous side of placentas in a Time magazine article and the second is a “how to put your own placenta in capsules” kit.,8599,1908194,00.html

Bon appetite. : )placenta
