Once upon a time there was a woman who lived in the world of Art. She came from a family of artists, and all of her friends were painters, jewelers, musicians. And although she herself was not an artist, she brought art into every aspect of her life, her home, her clothes, even her work was assisting other artists with their projects.
One day the woman was hanging out with a pregnant painter friend when she heard the voices of the GrandMothers, the ones her artist friends called Muses. Those GrandMother Muses were calling the woman to to assist in the greatest art project of all, the bringing forth of newly created humans. And though the woman loved the work she was doing, her artist friends told her that one must honor the inspiration of the Muses. So she did. And lived happily ever after.....
I am an LM, CPM, the 67th Midwife to be licensed in California. My midwifery practice, Awakenings Birth Services, was the first group practice in the Bay Area, and the first to have a website (built it myself on iWeb about a hundred years ago!). With my background in Arts Administration & Management, I knew the importance of staying abreast of marketing trends, resulting in my practice's continued growth & visibility during my eighteen years there. While Awakening's continues to serve the community under the guidance of Midwife Esther Healey, I've answered a new call to help others successfully navigate the business of professional birth-work.
Struggle Less. Succeed More.
That is my wish for you today.
