    I'd love to hear stories!

    I would love to hear other midwives stories about what they are doing on the international midwifery scene!

    I worked in the Philippines for about 4 years. I was a midwife in a free birth center. We helped women who otherwise would have gone to the local public hospital and these women were oftentimes to poor to afford what they would need there! I really loved the women there and helped lots of babies come into the world and trained a few students along the way. We were able to work under the licensed Philipina midwives that also worked at the birth center.

    What is your story?

    How did you get to be a midwife in the country you are in? Is it your birth country?

    Do you travel to other countries to deliver babies? Do you have to be licensed when you work there?

     

    Storytelling!
