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?!
