What a rewarding way to minister to others at such a vulnerable but special time in their lives! Thank you for assisting all those mothers over the years!

Thanks for this follow up to the original post. My mother and all of her siblings (11 total) were all born at home, but unfortunately I don’t know who assisted my grandmother. My mom died in 2005 and my last aunt died two years ago, so I guess I’ll never know. Thanks again to Kim for her very thorough answers.

I would love to read your book after going through the tough questions you answered. I am a nursing instructor in northern California and some of my students have expressed an interest in becoming nurse midwives. Your book would be a great inspiration for them!
Thank you!

One of my Amish friends said her husband had been at every one of her births! I thought it was wonderful but some English men are rather afraid of watching births:-)

I gave birth to my third child at home. My only regret is that I didn’t deliver my first two at home. Thank you for sharing your story.

Motherhood is shared across cultural boundaries and religious faiths. It is always nice to “meet” in that connection to each other.

What did you do to become a certified Midewife. Did you go to school for it.

Maybe it could happen Kate, after many years of Amish in only 2 countries (US and Canada), communities recently emerged in Bolivia and Argentina. Australia would have the appeal of being an English speaking country and an advanced economy…and I don’t know anything about Australian agriculture but I am guessing there could be some interesting opportunities there šŸ™‚

This source lists 1 Beachy Amish (a related group which uses more technology) congregation in Australia as of 1997: https://gameo.org/index.php?title=Beachy_Amish_Mennonite_Fellowship

Wow I don’t think I have ever seen such a variety of pumpkins. I wish I was closer to Missouri just to see the variety. The wagon loads of Mums is also a pretty sight to see. Thanks for the great pictures Don.
