I want to offer anyone, that has attempted to contact me thru the website, an apology for not hearing back from me. I did not know that the contact forms and requests were not being forwarded to me. I am truly sorry for not being able to respond and know that people we attempting to contact me!

Well what a busy spring it has been! It seems I have been on the road at least 3 days each week since March and I ( and my van) are tired! Right now we have a nice little lull  until the four moms due in june begin to kick our butts!

I thought I would take this time to add a new post and I might warn you this is tongue in cheek, everything is true but names, dates and locations have been changed to protect the... innocent! Even my name has been changed I am now referenced as "Stupi...

Your Support

When you asked me to attend your birth, you asked me to look beyond the legalities... you asked me to put my family on the line so you could have the birth experience you needed with a trained birth professional. You asked me to overlook that I work illegally, to overlook that my children’s mother could face consequences for being there. You asked but didn’t realize the work it would take, the 100+ hours I would invest in your care. You asked but didn’t see that I would be o...

Long Overdue...

Posted by jazminprice on March 21, 2011 at 10:41 PM Comments comments (0)

Well blown out of the water is my goal to blog once a week, let alone once a month. So many times I had the beginning of a great post while working at prenatal visits, in the garden or at a birth. Many situations have come up that would have made great fodder for a posting if only I could have rushed to the computer to type it up.


But the reality of 2011 is I have been a bit busy. A good busy. Life has had some great moments, even the terrible dark moments are good as they...

Well my commitment to writing a new post weekly has truly fallen by the wayside! It seems that time, holidays and technical difficulties have gotten in the way repeatedly. Oh, but that is all the spice of life right?


So many times I have said “I will write about…” only to forget the details during the day. Even as I write this current post I hear a baby crying, wanting his mommy, I press on and will continue to type! Maybe typing a bit quieter!

The year is coming to a close and I know for many of us thishas been a busy year. It seems to have flown by in a whirlwind and at times Ifelt as if I was holding on to the tornado’s tail just trying to not lose mygrip. There were other times though… that I felt as if I was at the exact rightplace and the exact right time and I was able to watch pieces fall where theyfit.

One such fit is coming to work in my own community. Italmost seems foreign to me to be worki...

Wondering about Wonderland!

Posted by jazminprice on November 18, 2010 at 11:34 AM Comments comments (2)

Good morning, So as I made the long drive to my appointments yesterday I had much time to ponder. And these were my thoughts…


Recently my kids and I have watched the new movie Alice in Wonderland, we love it. Basic (topical) story is: a young girl, being forced into a box, forced to let go of the wonder, finds herself in a “wonderland” filled with crazy characters, faced with a the thought that she isn’t the right person, the right Alice, on a missio...

Around the World and Back Again!

Well it seems that is the last two weeks I have been home a total of three days! And in the next two weeks will embark on another journey!


The MANA conference was full of information, new connections and great memories! I made two great friends, one a DEM (about to turn the corner on her CPM) from Minnesota, and the other an awesome CM from New York! Both gave me a different perspective of birth. I think at times I learned more from them than the classes we attended!

New Beginnings

Well it is official the website is live. It wasn’t supposed to be online until the beginning of next year and I am still unsure how it all happened but I know it is for a reason.


I have been trying to ponder what to post for my very first blog entry (not just on this site but total!). And I think I will just welcome “New Beginnings”! I am hoping this will be a resource for women in my community, I hope it will find those that need it!
