To dispel your notion that one needs to have burnout to feel the way I feel, it was not burnout or being judgemental. I was a brand new teacher, and I only taught one series of childbirth classes and knew that was enough for me to realize it was not right what was happening.
There is a huge difference in having an investment in clients outcome (which i don't) and deciding to refuse to participate in our medical system and what it is doing to women.
It is unimaginable what is going on in hospitals. With all you know as a cbe but not someone who birthed yet, choose a random doctor, most likely your GYN for birth control and pap smears (as most clients do) and try to have a normal birth in your local hospital with that random docotr!
Could be your calling, or the original posters, but not mine once I realize what was really happening in hospitals, I did not like teaching classes.
