Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Ranger1, your post reminds me...I was a home birth in one of the coldest '40s winters on record. We lived at the top of a hill; not particularly steep, but cover it with snow & ice & 'steep' takes on a whole new meaning. My Mother was delivered by a Midwife whose only modes of transport were a bicycle & her brogues. Somehow, she made it through, delivered me & if my Mother's recollections are true, Nurse Fisher had at least one other delivery to make the same day. What an amazing woman!
                               With Love to All,
