I am an ole birth junkie. I have 11 children. (9 were born at home) 2 vbacs. 7 of my girls live here in Nashville. My number 5 daughter is lead singer in the band "Rune away June". Their song "Lipstick" is playing on the country music stations climbing the charts. I practiced midwifery for 15 years as a "lay" midwife in a high volume practice in Southern Va.  Mostly among conservative Christians, Mennonite and Amish.  The last 20 years I have been about the business of raising the children as a single mom,working on getting that job done. Now my youngest is 15 and the call has gotten loud. I know how much the birth community has evolved and I come back humble and ready to start at the beginning. It suits me as it is a whole new scene. I want to bring my wisdom and experience as a traditional midwife but not break any laws. I was a bit to bold in my youth!!! I want to contribute and serve the women in the granny tradition with the gathered knowledge that only time brings. It is my pleasure to be a part of such an educated generation. Blessings
