I found out this morning that my midwife, Karen, died yesterday. Her partner who is also her daughter-in-law called me a week and a half ago to tell me she had inoperable brain cancer. Please pray for her family.

OMG, Jennifer, I'm so sorry! That is very sad. Do you know what you will do for the birth now?

Thank you for the T&P for her family.


Her daughter-in-law has been her partner for the last three years, and this isn't exactly my first time around, so I am comfortable letting her take over my prenatal care. I was honest with them both that I wasn't sure if I'd want them at the birth anyway. I'm leaving my options open between calling them or having a UC.
