I was never a participant previously, but now Im at a different place in my life and have embarked upon my midwifery studies, picked my program (NCM) and am actively dancing with a preceptor. (It feels like a slow waltz right now) I'm still waiting for the preceptor to actively engage in taking the journey with me and Im on pins and needles. I feel so close, yet so far from this dream.
I'd love some inspiration from those of you that are actively on the path to becoming a midwife.
I'd also love some feedback from anyone who completed the National College of Midwifery out of New Mexico's program. Even though I live in the land of Seattle Midwifery I really feel drawn to this program and the balance of traditional apprenticeship vs. structured educational program.
I'm excited to meet all of you in virtual community (hopefully in person community too)
