My name is Cait and I am 24. I attended 3+ years flip flopping majors from Sociology to Anthopology to Writing again and again. I then found out I was expecting and immediately started researching my birth options and what was truly best for myself and my child-- midwives! At home! Love!
Why had I never heard of this before!? I expressed to my high school counselor when I was younger how I wanted to deliver babies but he answered saying, "you want to be a doctor? You don't have good enough grades in math and science to do that" and so I was slid away from my path for awhile. It all happens for a reason.
So during my pregnancy and birth and thereafter, I have been studying pretty much everything I can get my hands on along with helping friends to make informed decisions. All of then told me that I would make an amazing midwife because of my loving nature and truth. My friend who just birthed yesterday said, "You were a better midwife than my midwife was".
I feel as though all of this has put me in a good position to partake in an apprenticeship/mentorship/guidance situation with a homebirth/birth center midwife. I am very eager to start observing a midwife and shadowing her so I can learn some more hands on practice. I have a 10 month old and I have read how it can be difficult pursuing this passion with young children so I feel the most comfortable with a situation where I can bring my son along with me to prenatals and possibly births. I know that those allowing for those scenarios are few and far between but I figure the universe will bring to me whatever is on my path in the timely manner that it is supposed to be.
So, I am sending the energy out in the hopes that the woman/women that are supposed to help guide me and whom I am supposed to learn from and grow with see this and feel the same.
