want to work in clinic-mom and baby

  1. is there such a thing as a clinic for pregnant and new moms who may be underpriviledged and in need of care ? i am pro-life, and i have always had
    this dream of going to an area where there is a need for helping mothers. it is something i have never been able to get out of my mind. when i look at the abortion issue and the struggles of single moms -i
    want to help; i feel i can't be satisfied unless i do.
    i am an lpn of 17 yrs. seems like everything is for
    rns. i would love to go out into homes to do well baby care..check up on how new moms are doing. my
    thoughts go to southern ohio, kentucky, wva.
    does anyone have any ideas? thank you! daun
    .....love helping moms and kids!

    you should look into becoming a doula and/or child birth educator. these certifications should help you be able to do the type of work you are looking for. here are some resources ive come across:

    dona international – build doula skills

    childbirth education training and birth doula training workshop at the academy of certified birth educators (acbe)

    good luck to you!
