Moments of truth are personal. They happen in different ways for everyone, and for different reasons. Have you ever wondered about the way other people approach their health and their care? Below, check out stories from real people like you about their experiences with the US health care system and with midwifery care. You can also share your own here.

My Midwife Mentor

I had worked in labor and delivery as an RN for many years and was feeling, lets just say, "frustrated". Then the hospital I worked for hired a fantastic midwife to help manage the deck. What a breath of fresh air. I knew right then that this was the career for me. With God's help, a wonderful husband, and hard work, I made it through school working full time and with 2 small children at home. Midwifery means the world to me. I am so blessed to be welcomed into so many beautiful women's lives! Including, my wonderful midwife, mentor, and friend "Connie".
