I start work tomorrow as a midwife on the postnatal ward at Epworth Freemasons' Hospital, East Melbourne. Our alarum is set for 5am. FIVE AM! Good grief! I'm scary to encounter at 5am. I don't think the alarum will sound. I'll awaken at 8 or 9, and be super late. How does anybody awaken at 5am? And the day after that, too! And the day after that!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

I didn't know you're a midwife! I'm not, but being a breastfeeding consultant AND having 4 babies in 3 different countries AND having spent 4 months on bedrest surrounded by midwives, AND helped delivering my friend's baby, I feel I know a lot about it. :-)
Good luck with your job! (and the getting up at 5AM...)
