What’s it like to be a Midwife?!
The MidwifeDiaries channel will always tell you how it is, and for this question, a warts and all approach is what’s needed to give you the scoop!
Being a midwife isn't all roses.
Being a midwife comes with a lot of responsibility, emotional demands, and long working hours. There are plenty of negative aspects of the job that you can’t shy away from when thinking about if it’s for you.
There are lots of stressful elements.
However, the nature of midwifery means it’s a privileged career. Your professional status means you will be highly valued, and get to share some of the best moments of families’ lives. Empowering and supporting women is immensely rewarding.
There are so many more positives than negatives.
To quote from my book (because I can't think of a better way of putting it)!
‘‘This is life changing stuff you’re launching yourself into. It’s not like you’ve seen on ‘One Born Every Minute’ or ‘Call The Midwife’. It’s a lot tougher - and a lot better. Midwifery is frustrating, demanding, and sometimes even scary. But it’s also life-changing, life-affirming and life-expanding.’’
