Words to Live by

Every Experience prepares you for the next and better things are yet to come.                                                                                                                        -My Mom

My mom always says this to me when I am going through a tough time.It will always remind me that everything happens for a reason and it will make me stronger for what is yet to come whether it is good or bad. It also reminds me that better things are going to come and though I have low times in my life, good times will follow.

My Role Model

My role model is my mom and dad. They always support me in what I do and are very hard workers. They have taught me to always work hard and you can achieve what ever you want. They also work well together as a couple and always get through hard times. They have shown me team work and how to be a good person. My dad is very patient and has taught me to do the same. My mom has shown me to stand up for myself and love others. Together they have shown me to stand up for my self but still listen to what people have to say and be patient.

Midwifes encourage natural deliveries  and more support and comfort for the mother. In an article about the midwifes in a hospital in Washington D.C, Kathryn explains, "Instead of being hooked to an IV in a hospital bed, Wisdom’s moms can labor in an aqua tub, take warm showers, receive massages, and move around into different birth-facilitating positions (one of the midwives pops into a squat to demonstrate). Rather than discussing epidurals, there’s talk of raising natural oxytocin levels through yogic heart-opening. And there’s a promise that the midwife—“birth provider,” in 2011 terminology—will be on hand through it all, rather than simply arriving for the big finale" (Masterson). This shows how midwifery is becoming more popular. It is a more natural way of delivery which new moms are becoming more interested in. The midwifes provide more care for the mother and stay there for them through out the whole process which can be more comforting for the mother.
