Have been interested in birth my whole life. Started studying midwifery after the c-section. Have taught a lot of childbirth ed classes, breastfeeding and been a doula. Abandoned all birth related activities after losing my 7th baby around 20weeks. Sold all of my books and equipment.
Fast forward almost 10yrs and I have lost over 150lbs, escaped an abusive marriage and returned to school. I am currently a psychology major with a concentration in premedicine, I am hoping to go to medical school. But WAIT! Dont be mad. I am not a fan of western medicine! However, I want to make change. I believe in holistic healing and whole body wellbeing. Just bear with me!
I have returned to midwifery...head on. I have enrolled in a guided self-study program and have spent close to $3000 re-buying texts and equipment! I am soooo ready to be back at this,,,i know it is where my heart is.
I want to take the NARM in about 2 years. I have all of the books in the recommended list, as well as several more required by my program. Here is my question:
How do you study/take in the material? Do you read each book individually, cover to cover, taking notes, etc? Or do you pick a subject and read each corresponding section in each of the books you have? Suggestions? Ideas? Help?
And PS ... I SWEAR I am going to make change in medicine. My interests are obviously womens health (OBGYN) and weight loss/nutrition/preventative medicine...I WILL MAKE CHANGE.
Getting thru med school is going to me hard for me,,,,just because of my beliefs....trust me....
