I would like to share the statistics of the families I was honored to serve this past year. As transparent as these numbers are, they in no way reflect the work that each family put into their births. Amongst these births were vbacs, home births, repeat clients and a lot of firsts, for both the families served and myself.
Some of these births went beautifully, without a hitch in sight. Others, well, they were chock full of challenges, growing opportunities and in a few cases, the odds were stacked too high against them. These numbers don't reveal those stories, journeys or triumphs. They don't reflect those losses. Let us never forget that there is more to a number than you'll ever realize.
