My Bread and Butter

I don't often talk about my day to day job on my blog. This is mainly due to the confidential nature of Midwifery.
Some days my job is busy and there can be stressful times.
However the good days far out weigh the sad and difficult days.
I can honestly say that I Love my job.
I thought I'd share this amazing animation called "Mother of many" by Emma Lazenby to let you see what I do on a day to day basis.
Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

I especially love how the midwife appears to draw the outline of the baby when she is palpating the mothers abdomen. I have always imagined that this is what I am doing when I am trying to find the position of a yet unborn baby.
The little sigh that the midwife gives at the end is just perfect.
I'm smiling just thinking about it.
You can find the complete animation here.
