If I had been blogging when my children were babies, over a decade ago, FIMBY would be a blog about birth and midwifery care, diapers and physical exhaustion. It would be about my life with littles.
I'd probably talk a bit about all the work I went through changing our diet. There might be more recipes. But come to think of it, I was so busy with my young children there wouldn't have been a FIMBY (like it is now) at that point. Not without child care, TV and caffeine.
Since I wasn't blogging during that time I missed out on sharing all the passion I have for birth.
Access to midwifery care, natural birth and breastfeeding, and my children's own birth stories have always been very important to me. You just don't hear about it because I've moved on to other things in my life, different adventures.
I've always wanted to share my children's birth stories publicly though, and now I've been given that opportunity.
I met my friend Naomi nine years ago. She was an apprenticing doula and attended Brienne's birth. I believe it was one of the first births she attended (Naomi - correct me if I'm wrong).
So in the scheme of my mothering life, Naomi and I go way back. Since attending Brienne's birth, Naomi got married, had a few kids of her own, wrote a book, attended more births, and started a homestead - not all in that order.
This week on Naomi's Birth A Miracle Services blog I shared Laurent's birth story. I wrote this soon after his birth and it was printed for his baby memories. But other than that it's remained unpublished for the public-at-large, until now. The story of how this beautiful boy came into our lives.
It was fun to revisit this time of my life. Birth, babies, and nursing.
If you're in the mood for more babies, birth and midwifery talk I've a couple links for you.
Now I feel the need to hug my big babies tight because they are growing up way too fast.
