Women Ask Wednesday Recap!

Happy middle of the week. I am seriously hoping to catch some babies this week as I venture back into the labor and delivery arena after a few months out of work. I can hear those little newborn cries already!

When I set out to start the blog, I thought a lot (and still think a lot) about the content I want to put out there. I always try and write something I would want to read. Did you know I read blogs for YEARS and definitely before they were cool.

I decided to go for three categories: one for midwives/student midwives, one for women, and a catch all bucket. Those three turned into what you see each week: Midwife Monday/Student Spotlight, Women Ask Wednesdays, and the Friday Five (which is always more than five…).

The Women Ask Wednesdays come straight from my practice. Some of the topics are common questions that I get asked one hundred times a year. Some of the topics are things that there aren’t a lot of good resources for. Some are in between.

But in an effort to spotlight those Wednesday posts, we’re doing a little throwback today.

These are the Wednesday posts for the past two-ish years. You can see they cover midwifery, pregnancy, postpartum, women’s health…everything.
