Birth Professionals

Always learning

I spent the day at a waterbirth workshop. I’ve been present for and attended waterbirth as a midwife, but there was still things to learn.

What struck me today? In addition to the research questions that alwys swim in my brain, I realized the newborn reflexes have a purpose in birth. How this never clicked for me before is beyond me. It makes the fetal movements make so much more sense. 

See? You never stop learning.
