There was birth discussion during my day today, and I did say at some point that I was going unassisted - unassisted pregnancy, unassisted birth.

A few minutes later, one of the other women turned to me and said, "We're just in awe of you unassisteders."

Awe? For gestating?

I'm not doing anything special. I'm just growing a baby, and then I'm going to birth it. No, no one is monitoring my baby, so according to the definitions of such things, I am operating without prenatal care.

Ironic, since I probably have more 'care' for myself & Tiddlywink than I have in any other pregnancy.

At the end of the day, though, I'm the person with whom the buck stops. Not anyone else. I suppose that could be something to be in awe of, but well - like the name on this journal says right now. If I'm flying solo, at least I'm flying free.


Yes, that is a good thing in a midwife! Thank you:)
