I'm Still a Midwife

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 :)

I am glad you have still found a way to do what you love. And a back up plan is ALWAYS a good thing =D

So glad you're back :) I've missed reading about your adventures with Nurse Crappy and all the rest. I'm also waiting on word about whether or not I'll be accepted into my program (FNP). Luck to us both!

Looking forward for your new post, eh. And hoping that you had pursued an education that you want to learn. :)
