OK- here I am at another great crossroads in my life. With the birth of my second daughter approaching, and my husband finally wrapping up his collegiate career, it is time for me to get serious about what the heck I want to be when I grow up. I am torn between becoming a Doula or a Midwife. I am weighing the options, and just can't seem to make a decision. My question is- to anyone who has persued midwifery as a career- Do you still have time in life to be the kind of mom who can do the bake sales, and the soccer matches and the field trips and all that fun stuff? I don't really want to work full time. Not while the kids are young. But, I wonder if I choose to become a Doula, will I always wish I had persued midwifery instead? Midwives are so revered, almost like rockstars (at least they are to me!).
