Getting To Know You.. (3/4)
 
This board obviously focuses primarily on topics surrounding natural birth, but I thought it might be fun to learn a little more about each other, beyond our birthing preferences, as the beautiful unique women we are :)

So the "GTKY" question of the day is..

If there were no limitations or obligations, What would be your dream job?

So far my jobs have surpassed my dreams. Growing up, I always wanted to be an archaeologist. So I went to school and became an archaeologist. Motherhood changed things for me and I started doula work, and now I am on a path to my new dream as a midwife!

Hmmm...if I didn't suck at public speaking, I would say I wanted to go around the country and speak to middle/high schoolers about eating disorders and their effects. I would also like to host parental seminars for warning signs and what steps to take from there.

But, alas, I suck at public speaking. Lol. I actually quite enjoy what I do, which is drug counseling and I previously worked with pregnant addicts. Which was really rewarding. It's something that I think I want to go back to.

When I was a kid I wanted to be a NICU nurse. Hahahahaha...I would be an AWFUL nurse. And probably even worse in the NICU. I have a good friend who is one and she is amazing at it. But it is totally not for me ;)

Well, stay at home mom (which is my job) but if we are talking paid job...
Working in a school office. The same schedule as a teacher but none of the paperwork. I will probably do that rather then go back to teaching when my kids start school.

Is being independently wealthy an occupation? ;)

I just quit working and I am so VERY thankful to be back home, I can't honestly think of a single job I would want to do.

Honestly being a SAHM has always been my dream. I'd love to have a small daycare as well and maybe be a doula here and there. My midwife is trying to talk me into midwifery school because she is in awe of how much I know and how in tune with my body I am. I don't think it's something I want to do while having small children though, and since we are just starting our family it would be awhile before that happened.

Honestly, I'm doing it :smile:

I'm a stay at home homeschooling Mama to a large family. We are expecting number 10 in about 8-9 weeks. My hubby started his own business and I help him with billing and paperwork in the evenings.

But this is honestly what I always wanted to do, I am Blessed :smile:

Hmm...I can't say I've ever really held a job that I would say was a "dream", although strangely enough I really enjoy secretary work, and being a personal assistant was very fun.

Still, if I had a dream job I would want to do something that would allow me my own freedoms. I would love to be in control of how and when I work. I've strongly considered becoming a doula and would love to look into that after the baby is born.

I have known since I was 8 years old that my calling was midwifery. It's still my dream/goal, but I'm waiting to be out of the baby/breastfeeding stage of life before pursuing it ;)

Midwife! Based on time and a slight fear, I have chosen (for now!) not to do it. I may still decide to at some point though..

I'm slowly and steadily working on my dream of being a Midwife. I'm working on my BSN right now before moving on to CNM.

My dream job was to be a translator or Ambassador...... Yea lol. I got to experience some really awesome things while in the Navy and I absolutely loved my job. It was a one in a million type of work that few get to do. I left everyday feeling like I had made a difference which is why my future jobs have to make me feel the same. I can't imagine working the rest of my life not feeling that.

If it wasn't for lack of motivation.. And not really feeling like I would have support., and not really wanting to challenge myself... ;)... I'd love to be a midwife.. Or work at a birth center as a nurse or something extra.. I dunno..

I would like to work for the Ellen show! Specifically I'd like to do what Jeannie does and give away money and gifts to deserving families!

I want to be a doula and lactation consultant. I loooove labor and delivery, I love breastfeeding, and I love empowering women to own their labor experience, where ever or how ever they do it!
