In high school, I had life planned out.
In that order.
So much for that.
After getting pregnant and having Sophie, I no longer liked the idea of being an OBGYN anyways. The birth experience was lame, not special, and sort of traumatizing.
I got smarter with Mya. We switched to a Midwife, and had a more enjoyable experience all around. I would have loved to be in a birth center instead, but halfway through the pregnancy, we weren’t prepared for the costs.
Some point in the last few weeks, something clicked. I’ve always wanted to birth babies. I love midwives. Why not be one?
Everytime I’ve looked into schooling for other career options, I would instantly get depressed. The time away from my family, and the ridiculous amount of money just seemed impossible. I looked up Midwifery anyways.
become a doula
Luckily I have had several very sweet ladies help me out so far.
And as always, Denny supports me completely.
I already have a scholarship through a doula organization, so off I go!
