I have decided to become a Midwife.

Both of my births were at home with Midwives and they were incredible. I know that I need to help women respect and trust their bodies during pregnancy and birth, so that is what I am going to do.

Seems like so many of us are considering the same! I know I am! I'm slowly working towards it but waiting until my kids are a little older.

It's infectious, isn't it?

Awesome!! Have you decided which route to take? I'm going to enroll with Ancient Art Midwifery Institute this winter sometime (as soon as we get the money rounded up). I love Carla's (the founder) philosophy and stumbled upon her TrustBirth site when I was deciding how to birth #2. I'm probably going to hold off on the apprenticeship part until early 2012 though so I don't have to leave my baby while she's tiny.
