Classes are finished, assignments turned in, presentations made, and final exams completed. Wow am I exhausted. But I am very excited about everything to learn in the coming year and the progress to be made. Time to hibernate a bit, love family and friends, and do lots of good and hard thinking about my role in midwifery and where I’m heading. Very exciting. And I’m thrilled to have enough time and brain space to actually do some deeper thinking about things and not just memorizing the frequency and timing of contractions in the various stages of labor.
