I am a SAHM right now, but will be going back to work when my little one starts kindergarten (in 3 more years).
His birth changed my life--it was fantastic. I am passionate about natural childbirth, as well as breastfeeding, and want to incorporate it into a career.
I do not know if I am cut out to be a midwife or doula--it is more the uncertainty of the work hours that scares me off than anything else.
What else can I do? I want to get started doing SOMETHING now, to prepare me--be it taking classes, reading, or volunteering, maybe working part-time or from home for now.
Can anyone help me brainstorm some options?
For what its worth, I have a BA in English, have worked at editing, writing newsletters, and have also been the director of a non-profit meals-on-wheels organization.
Thanks in advance.
