“I am a Midwife Because…Part II” is the follow-up to the video released last week of the same name, featuring seven different midwives! Learn how the experiences of being a research student, a Peace Corp volunteer, a New York City police officer, and a 7-year old child led seven American midwives into the profession of midwifery. The midwives in Part II represent a spectrum of educational backgrounds and provide services to women in their families in a variety of settings including clinics, homes, hospitals and birth centers. Here is a glimpse of their amazing and inspiring stories!
Part II marks the last I am a Midwife video we’ll release this season. More coming in September! Until then, please share this series with anyone you think can benefit from learning about midwives and safe, satisfying and supportive care they provide. Be sure to subscribe to our Youtube channel!
