Ever since I was about 16 (I'm 20 now) I knew that I wanted to do birth work. Now I've got my eyes set on labor and delivery, and eventually being a CNM. I accept the fact that I may
change my mind once I start clinicals this semester, but so far I really feel like this is the path for me. I've been happily following tons of midwife and L&D nurse blogs and reading books about midwifery and attending talks by birth workers and I'm planning on doing the process for doula certification next year and I hope this run-on sentence conveys how excited I am about all of this!
So if any birth workers among us want to share: what inspired you to do this work, what you love about your work, what gets you down about your work, anything! I'd love to read about your experiences, as a student one of my favorite things ever is to listen to more experienced nurses talk about what they do
