I began apprenticeship with local licensed midwife in October of 2007.

were you a doula before you decided to pursue midwifery? Yes

BA in English (focus=creative writing) and a BA in Theatre with a minor in Women's studies. I guess there are quite a few of us ole English majors who have answered the midwifery calling...

Yes, for the last 10 years. Still am...

How many years have you been a student? I've been self-studying for about 2 years, will be starting my apprenticeship and midwifery school in exactly one year. YAY! Can't wait!

How many years do you have left? I will be finished 3 years after I start my apprenticeship, if all goes well. So, 4 more years.

Did you have an undergraduate degree prior to becoming a midwifery student? Nope, but if I ever get a degree after midwifery, it will be in English with a creative writing emphasis.

Were you a doula before you decided to pursue midwifery? Becoming a doula (16 months ago) was my first big step in becoming a midwife. I wanted to be a midwife, and doula-ing was something that I could do that would immerse me in the birth world while finishing high-school (homeschool) and give me good experience at births. I had attended four of my mom's homebirths before officially becoming a doula.

Proud wife to my handsome husband partners.gif Malachi David (2010) and Jeremiah Daniel (2012) joined our family via two lovely homebirths. Rainbow.gif Doula for 7 years and now finally an apprentice midwife! bellycast.gif
