Day #1 was filled with greatness. Attended sessions on:
– water birth and hydrotherapy, with incredibly tangible information for practice and awesome presenters who are knee-deep in the best research
– a brief moment in the exam prep case studies to talk about tips to studying for the exam – y’all are going to rock it!
– the Maternity Neighborhood and innovations in EHR- links to national guidelines and notices about preterm birth and food deserts in a patient accessible health record – fantastic!
– opening keynote, listening in awe of the awesome warmth and goodness that is Becca Stevens
Finished the night with some alumni and faculty from my midwifery program, and then danced the night away at a Nashville bar late into the night with new and old midwife friends.
Am I ready for Day 2? Heck yeah.
Two absolute best parts of yesterday:
Meeting Sharon Schindler Rising, the innovator and creator of Centering Pregnancy (and now Centering Healthcare). Definite midwife celebrity moment!!!
Second best part: meeting all the awesome people who read the blog and came up to tell me so! I still have plenty of bags to give away, and I hope that you will come say hi!
