Midwife Monday: Happy Midwifery Week and A Tip for Postpartum Rounding

Hello! It’s National Midwifery Week – wahoo for midwives! We do midwifery every week around here though. I’ll highlight a couple of midwifery week things throughout the week, but there are a few other things in the line up that I’m excited about. One of them I’ve been waiting to share for a few months…

Kim’s Adoption Story

Happy Monday friends! Today is a special post. I have a dear friend that is sharing her adoption story. This is a friend that looked at me 13 years ago and said at an employee orientation “We’re going to be best friends.” We had never met before that day at orientation. And she was exactly…

Friday Five (#38)
