“It has been said that once a person finds their purpose in life, they will find peace. This is true for me. Caring for women brings me a sense of peace and pure joy that is indescribable.
The term midwife translates to “with woman.” Being a midwife allows me to be “with women” during every transition of their womanhood, not just birth. From adolescence to becoming a woman, to becoming a mother and then a grandmother. Being a midwife allows me to aid women in their health care journey during each phase. Prior to having a child of my own I valued the importance of my role as midwife, however after experiencing this transition into motherhood for myself, I have a whole new appreciation for being a midwife. Being a midwife is bigger than treating a gynecology need. It’s bigger than caring for the medical aspects of pregnancy; or attending a birth. Although these are vital pieces, being a midwife grants me the opportunity to make an impact on a woman’s life, that in turn can affect everyone that is attached to her. Women play such an essential role in the household. Women are the nurturers, the primary caregivers (or nurses of their household).  As a health care provider, I find joy in providing holistic care to women that empowers them and allows them to continue to be the best mother, wife, grandmother, caregiver etc. to their families."
