The Best Part of Being a Midwife

The Best Part of Being a Midwife

I love being a midwife.  It is the best job that I have ever had. One reason that I feel that way is because I view it as a calling on my life and not just a job that I fell into or am working just to pay my bills.  I have managed a couple of Taco Bells, been a receptionist, been a CNA in a nursing home, worked in a day care, worked at a call center for an insurance company, and even taught in a small Christian school for a few years. Some of those I worked just to pay my bills. I did enjoy being a receptionist and a teacher.  The whole time that I was at those jobs, I knew that they were just stepping stones until I could pursue midwifery.  I frequently get asked if I like my job when people hear that I am a midwife.  how could I not love it?  I personally can’t ever imagine going back to standing on my feet 10 hours a day telling teenagers how to make tacos, no matter how hard of a day that I have as a midwife.

So what is the best part?
