Happy mother's day to them and to all of you. Big hugs all around. Relish in them as there is an emptiness when your mother is no longer with you to hold.
As for me, this was a watershed moment. It was the first time I can recall in my 25 years in private practice that I had to relinquish the care of a woman to another colleague. This felt very strange for me as I am a healthy bit obsessive about completing tasks to which I have committed. I have shared this feeling with some of my midwife colleagues today and want to thank them for their awesome support. A big hug to my friend and colleague for 29 years, Dr. David Kline, too. Thanks, Dave.
