Breathe Easy, You've Found Me ((HUGS))

People will wonder why this blog is needed, why minority midwifery student? It's very simple actually; I was looking for this blog...but I couldn't find I created it. We all have unique experiences, and every experience, every story, can help someone else. I am a black girl from the hood at an ivy league professional school. That, alone, is reason enough to write. Somebody was looking for this blog. Someone wanted proof that what I'm doing can be done - even when you come from where we come from.

To that person especially, WELCOME.

I get to go to clinical today. Woo friggin Hoo. It is supposed to be my last day of prenatal/gyn clinical, and I so truly hope this is the case. (She has the option of having my come another day in a few weeks in December) I could really use any extra days in December to take call for labor patients.

In other news:

I got an SOS email from an underclassmen... I reposted two posts from December of '07 for her. (over in the archives) She thinks she's going crazy. I remember that feeling quite well. I don't feel that way as often as I used to, but sometimes, when things get crazy, that sense of "I must have been crazy to think I could do this" creeps in. As this semester narrows down, I feel it more often because I am in my last ever midwifery classes and I of course don't think I know anything. But I want her to know that she isn't crazy. She isn't losing her mind.

She's just in midwifery school.

And it aint no ways easy.

Hey, wanted to say I just found your blog from a link from one tenacious baby mama. I'm going to start reading from the beginning...
