Subtract The ‘Sville

April 28, 2012

Busy, busy morning but we’re on the way to Charlotte!!

image

After breakfast but before the rain, I walked to the bakery to put in some time before we hit the road. I definitely ate too much bread for no reason other than deliciousness (and they made me do a few quality control calls… Can’t turn those down.) Feeling a bit overloaded at the moment!

image

Rosemary (welcome back!) made me a sandwich for the road… Pimento cheese on Cville Crunch. I was only going to eat half but an hour later went back for more!

image

A strawberry for dessert… More later!

Matt’s monster sandwich!

I was hoping to get some work done but my laptop battery is dead! Reading it is….

image

Can’t wait to see some of our old friends! And drive by our old house! It’s really weird to be going back to the place we called home for 5 years….

Ina May is the best midwife in the world! Her books are excellent. I would also recommend Ina May’s guide to breastfeeding! Love your blog.

OMG that bread looks so good, can someone open a Great Harvest in Jersey City, NJ? I will be first at the door every morning, and will gladly assist with any quality control tasting!!

I’m reading that book right now. Sometimes I’m reading it and I’m like, “this makes a lot of sense!” and then sometimes I’m like, “This lady is a nutjob.” I’m conflicted.

Trust me–after teaching childbirth classes and being a doula for the past ten years, I can tell you that Ina May is anything BUT a nutjob! She just understands birth in a way that OBs really never think about it (because they tend to discount the emotional/mental aspect of birth and only focus on the physical). I always tell my students that I truly believe birth is about 95% mental and 5% physical—because the physical is going to happen either way but how you feel emotionally will dictate whether the physical aspect is easy or hard!

That book is *excellent*! I read it when I was doing my doula training. If you haven’t looked into it already, another great one is “Pregnancy, Childbirth, and the Newborn.” by Penny Simkin.

I cannot bear the thought of driving by my old childhood house. It’s like I need to preserve my memory of it!
Hope you enjoyed each crumb of bread. ;)

WOW! That bread & sandwich look phenomenal!

That is THE book that I recommend to my childbirth couples! If they read no other book before class, I tell them they must read this one :) While Ina May is a hippy, she knows her stuff and even OBs use her techniques for things like shoulder dystocia (her technique is known as The Gaskin Maneuver). SO glad you are reading it :)

I concur with what all the other women here have said about Ina May. I just had my first baby 8 weeks ago and was so nervous about the whole labor process- especially as I am an American living abroad in London so went through the NHS. Ina May’s book filled me with confidence and I went into labor confident, excited and ready mentally to adapt to whatever happened. Highly recommend it!
