Midwifery In Demand, Financially Sustainable?

A general question to everyone here about whether or not I should become a midwife (CPM) or get my Master's in Nutrition.

Is there a growing demand for CPM-led care?

For mothers - is it hard to find an available midwife?

For midwives - do you feel midwifery can sustain a one-income family (with two young kids) at an adequate cost of living? I am (extremely) frugal and good at finances. The consistency of the pay checks is what scares me the most.

My biggest fear is getting the master's degree and not being able to use it. I'm sure many graduates can relate!

Thank you you all for reading...and hopefully commenting! Plan right now is to attend Bastyr University, WA and settle down near my sister's in Elk Grove, CA. I am transitioning out of the US Navy in three months and still trying to get a handle on the plan. Seems like life keeps nudging me in different directions.

I am sad that this question has no replies. This is such a great resourceful website but so many of the questions are left unanswered. There has to be numerous midwives who could answer this. Please people, give of your time and answer questions and let's help each other! I am not a midwife, so I don't have any answers.
