Nathanael is two today, as of 1:01 this morning.
I feel like I remember everything, but looking back at his birth story, there are things that I forget! The speed of his birth is not one of those things, however!
Today we're celebrating at home with a few friends and family.
He is a sweet, funny little boy. He likes to joke and smile. He's saying more words, and has serious, thoughtful looks. He loves, loves, loves a 4-wheeler. He talks about them all the time.
Take a chance to look over Nathanael's birth story, and If you feel inspired, contact your state legislators to express your support of legal access to certified professional midwives!
I know that several states neighboring mine are in the midst of trying to get legislation passed this legislative session. That means, YOU, friends from Iowa, and Illinois! I've already written to legislators in your states, and I don't even live there. You don't have to want a home birth yourself, you just have to support others being able to make their own choice regarding birth care provider and place of birth.
Here are some links to help you connect with supporting access to legal home birth midwives:
Iowa - CPMs are not legal currently. Working on legislation to legalize them!
Illinois - CPMs are not legal currently. Working on legislation to legalize them!
Missouri - Victory! CPMs are currently legal in Missouri, but we need to defend families' right to choose with whom and where birth happens, even now!
