Karen Ehrlich began her journey with birth in 1972 and retired from clinical care in 2015. She hopes that this memoir will en-courage other long-time midwives to write their stories, so the many-layered tapestry of the re-emergence of midwifery will be available for years and generations to come. She is married and is a stepmother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, aunt and great-aunt. Her master’s thesis, completed in 2003, is entitled “Life is a Sexually Transmitted Condition: The Sexuality of Labor and Birth.” It can be read online at midwifekaren.org.View all posts by Karen Ehrlich
