Gratefulness

I often think about how we got to where we are now.  It’s far, very far from perfect, but it is a whole lot better than what my mother experienced when she was having her babies in the 40’s and 50’s.  Names cross my mind, people to whom I owe a great deal.  Just a few:  Grantley Dick-Read, Robert Bradley, Gregory White, Frederick LeBoyer, Ina Mae Gaskin.  And so many more.  All pioneers and we are the new pioneers, carrying forth their work and changing the future.  Massachusetts Midwives and Friends of Midwives, thank you for all that you have done, continue to do, and will do in the future.
