Hi, My name is Pam. I live in Grants(89 miles west of albuquerque and 60 miles east of Gallup; on I-40). I'm new to the community but have been getting MT's E-news for about two years. I decided to become a Midwife about four years ago. I want to have my own clinic some day so, I'm going to get a BSN at NMSU-Grants....Should be graduating in three years. After that, I'm going to look for a CNM program. While I want to practice somewhat traditionally; I realize leagal issues make it difficult. I had a very empowering birth at a free standing midwifery clinic in Wasilla, Alaska, in 2001. My son, Duncan, is now almost eight. I feel that experience helped shape my desire and God placed the call on my life. I'm looking forward to chating with all of you.
