  • Sisterhood in Midwifery?

    Do you feel a sense of sisterhood in your midwifery community? Do you feel like you are supported as a midwife with fellow midwives? Did/do you feel supported in your process of "becoming" a midwife in your community? What is your "coming of age" story in the midwifery community?
