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.

Empowering Women

My journey to becoming a midwife has had many inspirations and moments of truth including my own birth at home with a midwife 30+ years ago, the wonderful and inspiring midwives who have become my mentors along the way, and, most of all, the joy I feel every time something I say or do helps to empower a woman in her own journey to becoming a mother. Reading all of the stories shared here about how midwives have been able to make a difference in so many lives is yet another moment of truth. For me being a midwife is more than a career, it is an honor and my passion.
