  1. It’s nice to see family practitioners supporting mommies!

  2. “yep, that’s what the uterus is for!” :-)
    It is nice to see a dr actually encourage a new mommy. :-D

  3. That is incredibly lovely to hear!! :)

  4. Okay, that was mine. The rest of the story is this–the family practice doctor had agreed to be the emergency backup for my homebirth. I went to see her five days postpartum because I was concerned about how some labial tears were healing (I had bruising, a scab, etc.). I went in and told her that we’d had the baby at home and that he was 9lbs 2oz and she said the above :) Then she held and admired the baby and complimented his name and then checked me out and helped me understand what was going on (even drawing a little picture). She spent 45 minutes with us at that visit!
