Coming full circle

My moment of truth happened 31 years ago. Pregnant with our second child, we knew we wanted a midwife. The birth was amazing and we subsequently had a midwife for our third child. After our children were a bit older I returned to school to persue a career in midwifery. Graduation arrived and I found myself in the job search. After nearly a year of searching from coast to coast I found a position. Not just any position but a partner in a practice at the very place I gave birth with my first midwife. Full circle and ready bring midwifery to the next generation.
