FINALLLLY! WE’VE GONE LIVE! I would just like to say thank you so much for taking time out to visit my site and supporting this project! I will be using this platform to educate new and experienced parents with evidence-based information, provide advice and answers and discuss thought-provoking topics, with a few miscellaneous posts too!
Milestones are important moments in life, that deserve to be celebrated. This moment right here is a milestone in itself as I’ve been wanting to do this for the longest, but I just hadn’t gotten round to it, so I’m really excited! Also I’ve been working as a midwife for a year (and two months to be exact) so that’s probably an even bigger achievement for me so YAAAAY! *Party poppers and confetti explode*
So to introduce you all to the blog, I thought I’d just slip in a short Q&A about being a midwife and give you a snippet of our world:
When did you decide you wanted to become a midwife?
I decided that I wanted to be a midwife from the age of twelve (like, for real, no joke lol). I came across a book that belonged to my mum when she was pregnant with me; I had a read of it and from then on, cliche to say, but I just knew!
What do you enjoy about your job?
I love the fact that I can be apart of something so beautiful and special to a family; it is a day they never forget so it really is a blessing to be apart of that. I also appreciate the relationships and rapport you can build with the women and families in my care.
Is becoming a midwife hard?
The training to become a midwife is definitely hard, and requires a lot of focus, resilience and dedication. As long as it is a career you have a passion for, you can do it! A small piece of motivation for everyone!
I guess it’s time to wrap this introduction up, but I hope you all return to see my future posts on Pregnancy, Birth and Beyond. Please like, comment and let me know what you think – I will aim to post every Thursday and Sunday, provided I’m not too slumped after my shifts lol.
