Live blogging is hard

My intention was to have daily round-ups of the Normal Labour & Birth International Research Conference on the blog and follow it with some in-depth pieces over the next few weeks.  But between a packed agenda, phenomenal networking opportunities, a gracious hostess who dragged me (neither kicking nor screaming) to see an international fireworks competition over the harbor last night, and jet-lag, I haven’t been able to blog one bit.  The good news is that I have about 6 months worth of blog posts I could write out of this conference. So stay tuned for some quick-hit pieces and some more depth analysis, coming soon!

In the meantime, 140-character-sized updates from the conference are constantly streaming on Twitter.

    Thanks for the excellent tweets, Amy! For what it’s worth, I completely understand the ADD-inducing world of tweeting, blogging and, oh yeah, actual attending of conferences you’re so thrilled to share with others :)!

    The information about what constitutes “normal birth” from the tweets, however, is very encouraging and I look forward to hearing more.

    Lucky you, getting to see the fireworks–that was always one of my favorite things about summers in Vancouver (along with the late sunsets!) We’ll survive with *just* the tweets until you get home–I’m just happy you’re there and we will eventually get the goodies when you’re back to whatever normal is!!

    The conference sounds like so much fun! I love the “cascade of normal” illustration.
