The Passing of the Torch, er, Beeper

It’s official! I’ve been passed the all important beeper which signifies that the old apprentice is no longer on call for births and now I will be. Another week and a half of freedom, and then I go on call. Delicious, exciting, ants-in-your-pants-can’t-wait on call. It feels momentous. I keep gearing up by attending more prenatals and postpartums. I finally feel like I’m getting a little bit better at performing Leopold’s Maneuvers, which is exciting as all get out.

In the meantime, I’ll be enjoying the rare sunny and beautiful weather this weekend and attending the 2010 Reproductive Justice Conference coming up at Hampshire College. I cannot wait! So many good topics and so many good speakers, plus I get to be back in the Pioneer Valley where I went to college. I might even visit the old alma mater while I’m in the neighborhood (are you kidding? I’m chomping at the bit to get my feet back on that hallowed, beloved ground).
