I am a Certified Nurse-Midwife (CNM) in New York City in my first year of clinical practice. I am also a Certified Labor Doula (Childbirth International). I love traveling, Yiddish, Chinese, and being outdoors; I sometimes write about those things in addition to midwifery. I am a feminist, Jewish, and in possession of strong opinions.
I used to live in southwest China’s Yunnan province, where I worked at an international public health NGO. For several years I blogged about life in China and travels in Asia as BirdAbroad, a blog which went viral for 5 minutes over photos that I took of a fake Apple store in the city of Kunming. If you’re looking for those posts, you can see them here, here, here, here, here, and here, before I got tired of all that business and wrote about all the mistakes you shouldn’t make if your blog goes viral.
