This may not be the best place for this but I don't know where else to ask opinions. I'm a newish labor doula. I love it, especially since I feel its prepping me for my future as a midwife. I've been aiming for Midwifery for the past 10 years and something always comes up to delay the process (Finances, babies, illnesses). At this moment in my life, I feel that I'm on a precipice and need to make some decisons immediately. I have the option of attending a Midwifery distance program (no apprenticeship or skills just academics....very good NARM prep) at a fairly significant price cut, or attending a Monitrice training for about the same *initial* cost of the Midwifery program I'm not sure which path is the most logical next step for me. What would you do?!

Bumping this up for attention as it seems to have been missed. Anyone have any advice to share? smile.gif
