I had to laugh at myself this morning as I was setting up for Day 2 of the ICEA Professional Childbirth Educator Workshop.
We are starting the day with teaching comfort measures and I took out my mini-speakers and I-Pod.
I remembered the first childbirth class I ever taught in Lompoc, California in August of 1980. I had a cassette tape of relaxation music.
Some years later, I was teaching childbirth classes at a community college south of Melbourne, Florida and I had a boom box.
Now a set of speakers and COUNTLESS tunes on my I-Pod. Including my favorite to teach relaxation and breathing ~ "Mexican Memories" by Michael Jones from his Seascapes CD.
We've come a long way baby! A very long way. ROFLOL!
