Hello All.

 

I have been thinking about being a midwife since the birth of my daughter in 2005. Being a midwife as always called to me, even as a young child. Today, I relised that I will not be happy, truly happy, with any other profession that I choose. I was ment for this. It is my passion. I think about it day and night and study birth almost non stop. Ive decided to step up, and stop waiting around. Im going to be a Midwife.

 

I have a few questions that I was hoping someone could answer for me. Please, forgive me if they dont sound very smart. There is alot I wish to know- and I have no idea where to get started. I need a few simple, easy to understand instructions/steps.

 

1) So I want to be a midwife. Where do i start? I know that I want the option of being an 'on call' midwife ( not sure what the correct term would be ). I would like to have the option of working alone, in families homes without HAVING to work out of a birthing center/hospital.

So, I ask again- where would i start?

 

Step by step- what do i need to do as far as school and everything education? ( as well as steps afterwards.)

 

Any information would be very greatly appreciated.  Thanks for your time!

 

PS: Wishing to become a CPM in the state of Georgia.

 

PSS: Since im more of the 'alternative' type (more hands off, less interferance during birth, use of herbs ect ), and the fact that I want to practice in homes, it seems that a direct entry program will be the way to go for me. How do i go about doing this? Can it be done online? Does anyone know if the state of Georgia allows this?
