HIPAA -- I salute you!

Yes, you! I'm talking about you!

Actually, I'm not talking about you. I can't. It would violate HIPAA to blog about you, and it would feel ethically wrong to discuss specifics about a client. I know I don't ever say anything bad about clients, but still, it's just a comfort thing. So I've gone back and edited my old blogs. From now on, I'm going to maintain privacy: change details, times, not use names, etc. I am upfront about working with Leigh, and she is an out-of-hospital midwife, but when the birth center opens she will be doing both homebirths and birth center births. And I'm going to be working with midwives other than Leigh in the future.

So there, HIPAA! Take that!
