yay for a new baby. Are you a doula or midwife?
post #262 of 504
did you just tag *me* with that 25 random things? I just got another notice from facebook about that one minute ago
if it wasn't you, it's freaky coincidence.

and I'm a MW
post #263 of 504
lol, it wasn't me. Not unless I don't know that you are on my facebook friends list. That is an odd coincidence.

Very cool that you are a midwife. What was your journey to becoming one?
post #264 of 504
okay, just to compound the weird facebook coincidences, someone called jen just friended me, and I don't think it was you. :

I don't even do facebook very much


and my path to midwifery was basically a long, difficult, and unplanned unassisted homebirth (well, the homebirth bit was planned, but everything went haywire), followed by doulaing for some friends, meeting a mw and assisting at a few births, and deciding that's my life... 5 years of independent study including 3 years of practice later... here I am

Amazing, it really can be done that quickly with a small child. How expensive was the process? The cost of midwifery school is daunting to me.
post #266 of 504
if you do an off-site school like AAMI, it's really very affordable

and I'm blessed enough to have a *very* supportive DP who works at home, and we're unschooling, so we have the flexibility to make it work quite effortlessly

Really? How affordable?

have a look at their website. the other thing is that they often have specials and drawings for discounted rates, etc. ancientartmidwifery.com

It's 1125am and we are off to a friend's house for lunch and to squeeze her chubby babe We've had a little but of breakfast just 5 mins ago so we don't eat her out of house and home in half an hour

The whole thing is under $5,000. Wow. That is accessible to me. I've got the Seattle Midwifery School right down the road from me and I think its like $30,000. I just finished a M.Ed. that in total was less than $15,000 and even though I paid that entirely out of pocket, I still thought it was a good deal. Woah...something to think about...

Are you licensed?
post #271 of 504
I'm off to bed, but thank you for that education. I will be seriously considering that.

morning orangefoot enjoy those chubby babas

jenneology, no I'm not licensed, and I don't intend to be (for various reasons, but mostly because of the legal restrictions around licensing where I live). I'm happy being a radical renegade lay mw :

If I were to do that program, that'd be my plan too. Glad to know that people like you do exist.
