Lauga in the room where she sleeps during lambing season

(Post 2 of 3)

Raising sheep is Lauga’s hobby, and she is darned good at it. This is her room, within the sheep barn, where she spends the nights during lambing season. All of these framed certificates are prizes she has won.

Lambing can be very quick, “Sometimes is starts and finishes within one hour,” so she needs to be close by to help the sheep if there are any problems. Here she has everything she needs: a bed, an alarm clock and stereo to listen to music.

This room is a peek into the passion and skill of an accomplished midwife.
