So, I was talking to a friend the other day about what we ant to do when we have "finished" having kids and they are at school and we can go back to full time work. I sorta felt like it's going to be too late for me to start a career and I'd just take whatever job popped up. She laughed and said "you're only 22!". Which got me thinking, maybe I COULD do something.
I've always been interested in pregnancy and birth. I find little facts and things so interesting and I love reading birth stories. The idea of helping a woman become a mother make my heart skip. I would love to be able to help someone meet their baby for the first time. Apart from only having gotten over my needle phobia two years ago I'm not real squimish so I reckon I could handle the "icky" stuff. lol.
But what's really involved in becoming a midwife? How long does it take?
Do any midwives on huggies have something interesting or important that they could share with me?
Appreciate any replies.
OOOHHH... INTERNET FIGHT. WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO? CAPS LOCK ME TOO DEATH?
