There is an RA reunion for the staff I was on years ago, this summer and somehow I ended up coordinating it.

Yesterday I had the *best* conversation with one of my dear old friends I hadn't talked to in ages - she is a CNM now (I'd known she was getting a Masters, hadn't known what "in"). And, she's recently moved.

She said she just loves being a CNM, it's beautiful .... The hours are tough but worth it. She said the only thing that makes her sad, is that in her new location, there are so many moms who request the epi -- they don't trust their bodies and get scared. And she feels sad for them when that happens; and that it makes things harder for her, because once they have an epi it's much more difficult to help them labor, since their labor slows down and they can't walk etc.

Anyway, she's all about NCB and so on, and it was just a good, good conversation. She's new-er to CNM and I'd imagine that as she becomes more and more comfortable, she'll figure out ways to help more moms over the "epi" hump and enable them to continue with an NCB ....

Not all who wander are lost.
