I’m back and better than ever. There’s plenty of madness going on in my life right now, mostly good. I’ve been teeter tottering between hobbies and passions trying my best to find a balance, and well, no luck yet. If anyone finds the algorithm for the perfect balance please enlighten me. I’ll pay for it!
Today, I walked into birthing heaven. PUSH Midwifery and Birth Center was just the place I needed to visit to get my muse back. Visiting Robyn Pool and getting a tour of her new birth center made me feel like a kid in a candy store.
Robyn was one of the two midwives present at my labor. She was the beautiful being who caught Little Nugget. She brought peace, security, and confidence to my pregnancy. She showed me my first real placenta (my own) and taught me about it. (One of the coolest things I’ve ever seen!) She even made Josh and I a postpartum dinner. Her passion for what she does is undeniably apparent through what she has created for her clients, and you feel it when you walk through the door.
Before I move forward with describing the birth center, let me just say that my words and pictures will not do it justice. Robyn completes the equation to this birthing environment, so part of the experience is conversing with Robyn herself.
Neighbor to the Thousand Oaks Surgical Hospital, PUSH Midwifery and Birth Center makes you forget you are in a medical building surrounded by dentists, surgeons, and radiologists. The calming aroma that massages your face as you walk through the door is a reminder that childbirth can be a beautiful experience. The vintage feel the center has is a reminder that childbirth has existed for years and is stronger than ever. The soft colors on the walls and furniture make the lighting perfect for a laboring woman to discover the inner peace needed during labor. I can try to continue explaining what the center looks like, but I invite you to take a look for yourself…
I am so grateful to Robyn for allowing me to take pictures of her birth center and just sitting with me to catch up.

Cheers to having good people in your life!
