I just delivered my 100th baby as a licensed midwife! Just feeling good and wanted to share. This career is really, really tough some days, but the rewards make everything worth it. I'm so happy I'm doing what I've always wanted to do!

Your post made me smile. I never would have thought that someone would keep track of some kind of record like that, but I guess it is a milestone.

May you have many many more, esp the good ones. :yes:

Thank you! I keep track just for my own knowledge, don't really know why. I'm lucky that the vast majority have been happy and healthy, and also lucky that I'm mentored by a great practice of midwives.

Good for you! I love, love, love, babies but could never do what you do! (I've had 4 of my own but would faint if I had to deliver someone else's LOL) What an amazing life CNM's have! :inlove:

Libra, do you do clinic too? How often are you on the labor floor? I'm thinking of some of the new midwives I work with, and I don't think they are anywhere near 100 births! But they also spend half their shifts in clinic.

Hi klone,

I do 2 8-hour days in the clinic, and 2 12-hour shifts per week in L&D. I just work at a really busy site because right before I started my job, they closed L&D at the hospital where I work, and sent all the patients to the nearby sister hospital to deliver, which is an enormous academic medical center. So two services combined into one hospital's L&D, and we are constantly booming. Luckily they're reopening our L&D next week and we will go back to being a small community hospital with a slower pace on our labor floor, so I'm sure my next year as a midwife will not be so busy. I also am always the first to volunteer to take laboring admissions because I just really want to get experience!

Awesome! I plan on keeping my own statistics, just to see where my opportunities for growth may be and just in case I ever decided to have my own practice I can have some stats to talk about
