Thread: Hello from a Gran

  1. #1

    Default Hello from a Gran

    Older lady who's probably too old to think about having classic length hair but going for it anyway, cuz I can. I've had natural curls all my life which made me look like I had unkept hair, no matter what I did to it. Now my hair is thinner with age and 3 children (changing from curl to wave in pregnancy) and hoping to enjoy my later years with long hair.............here's to hoping!

    I'm 48 & classic length; you are *never* too old!

    Good luck & happy growing, and most of all: welcome to this forum! Nice meeting you.

    I'm not licensed but I've done the courses. When I found out how invasive having a child is to mothers and babies, I decided I wanted to part of getting the actual license as I would lose it on my first paying patient. I helped deliver my daughter's first and it was a true joy and if I was asked to assist a neighbor, I would but with less verbalism in a hospital setting. OB's are trained to tend to a mama from the top of their uterus and downward but never ask how mama is feeling emotionally, and to me that is crucial. I would love to continue as a licensed doula..............when women giving birth are not treated as though they are sick and being guilted into delivering in hospitals as much as possible.

    As someone who had severe birthing complications and more than an hour drive to the nearest hospital, I'd never give birth away from one again, not that it will ever be an issue for me again at age 67. Happy hair growing! I reached a long-held goal of classic length in my 50s, making a second "run" for it now.
