Students Become Midwives

IMG_5805-copyMost of you know that Raizy Goldsmith has been my student for the past three plus years.  I am thrilled to announce that Raizy is now officially a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM).  She took and passed the national certifying examination on November 13, 2014!  It is very exciting indeed.

More exciting news…Shira Wolman, who many of you know over the past two years as my student also passed her certifying exam.  She will be going back to Israel and working to improve birth in her community there.  They are lucky to have such an amazing and caring midwife!  I will miss Shira so much!
Congratulations to both of these midwives!

Finally, an announcement of my own.  I am a grandmother again!  I was blessed to receive into my hands my second grand child, a beautiful little girl named Katherine (katie) Jane, on October 26th, 2014.  Her big brother Calvin is madly in love with her, as we all are.

love to all,
