Long story short, how do you make it work as a doula, midwife assistant or midwife if you have young children at home?
I've had the bug off and on for several years to be a doula or midwife assistant but never pursued anything because it just didn't feel poosible with little kids. I have a 4 yr old and 18mo old now. I work outside the home 3 days a week, but if I could easily drop that job if I had income from a birthing job. But my husband works Mon-Fri 7-3, and his work hours/schedule are not flexible. And I always think if I had to leave for a birth during the night, what do I do? I know a lot of women manage this, so I'd love to hear some input on how you all accomplish it, what you've found works for you!
