    So I attended my first twin birth and first breech birth at the same time...

    just outside my mom's goat barn.  ;)  Two adorable little doelings, both born breech.  My mom helped the first one out and I helped the second one out (after seeing how stunned and wet sounding the first one was, I didn't let the second one sit there quite as long).  Really cute and my three children are totally in love with the goat kids.  :)

     Ain't life wonderful!  We have baby sparrows on the front porch.  I love spring.  In Michigan all is green and lush with the promise of more to come.  Morrels and steak for dinner tomorrow! Yum.

    How sweet,!!  Would that human breech and twin births were treated so normally.

    I envy you guys the distinct seasonal changes, not that I would trade places though!

     ~ "Jesus was born unassisted" ~  ?!?

    Possibly, the Bible doesn't say whether or not they had a midwife, but according to the Protogospel of James, a 1st century writer, the Innkeepers daughter was there to midwife. I believe her name was Dorcas, but I could be wrong about the name, I read it long ago.
