When I last 'talked' to you guys I was contemplating leaving midwifery and had started to set some plans in motion. I was applying to school to do another specialty.
Since then, I have switched jobs! I no longer want to leave midwifery anymore :) I have a new position that is considerably closer to my home and far more supportive environment. I'm working with a wonderful midwife I have known for about 4 years. Even better, one of the midwives from the 'old' job will be joining us soon!
I miss the midwives but absolutely nothing else at my old position. Things had only gotten worse and I was thinking about taking up drinking - haha. I was gonna call it group therapy though.
I am still planning to pursue an education in another specialty, waiting to hear if I have been accepted. I feel like it's important to have a back up plan :)
