More sense November 26, 2010

From the excellent Ina May Gaskin…





It’s not only obstetricians who think I’m batshit crazy – I tried explaining this concept to a student midwife the other day. If only I had had this video to hand, she might have been a whole lot less ‘back away from the hippy midwife before she tries to hold my hand and sing’ and a whole lot more ‘why yes, wise and passionate teacher, I totally get you’.

    A student midwife wearing a badge that says nurse has no right making any sort of face that implies you are a batshit crazy hippy midwife she needs to avoid. As a student you keep your mouth shut, observe what happens around you and listen to everything the other midwives to have to say, if you don’t like it you can leave it out of your practice when your registered but until then show some respect!! Do you think I should be the next educator?? 😀

    You can’t be defensive or they’ll sense it! All students are judgemental – it’s one of the joys of being a youthful type person who knows EVERYTHING.
