Approaching a MW about apprenticeship

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I live overseas and during a one-year sabbatical (for my DH), I will be able to apprentice... in about 3 or 4 years. I will be visiting the USA this summer, spending about 3 weeks in the area where I'd be apprenticing.

Is it too soon to approach a midwife (and how?) and say that I'm seeking an apprenticeship in 3 years, I'm attending X school, have A/B/C skills, am interested in their practice because of Q. Could they save a spot for me? What could I do between now and then for them to want me as an apprentice?

I don't want to burn my bridges before I start KWIM? But I also know that face to face can be good and I only have limited time and visits for that. Any ideas?

Hmm, in your situation I probably would contact midwives, since you are normally overseas, and because I hear that in some areas midwives have a waiting list for apprentices.

But that said, until I know more when/where I might be going, I've been putting off seeking an apprenticeship- so what do I know? :

If you approach midwives this summer, I'd love to hear what you find out.
