2011 Iron and Wine MANA Benefit Concert

I was so thrilled to be able to go to the 3rd annual Iron and Wine MANA Benefit Concert. It was seriously exciting to go to a concert where all the proceeds benefited my own professional organization.

Best part of the night? The local midwife who organizes this annual event introduced Sam Beam, explained about homebirth midwifery and MANA, and then walked off stage. Sam goes on to talk briefly about how midwives have been very important in the story of his family. And then he says a little awkwardly, “I want to let you know you have options.”

Someone from the crowd calls out, “I want YOU to be my midwife!”

To which he replies, “Ummm. That would be weird.” And then launches into his set.
