Went to the MANA (midwives alliance of north america) conference in Traverse City a couple of weeks ago. Had a fantastic time, met lots of great midwives, and really cemented my purpose and where I'm going.
Our room was on the 15th floor at the Grand Traverse Resort and Lodge. What a really cool place! Outdoor hot-tub, indoor water slide, jacuzzi tub in the room. There were 4 of us in the room, but there was plenty of space.
I had an opportunity to practice suturing (on a chicken breast, not real people!), but it was still fun.
