Thanks for your question, Ashley! It's a good one.
In college, I was a roommate with a nursing major who specialized in pediatric nursing. Later in life, when I gave birth to my child, I was attended by three midwives.
In all my conversations with them, I think the very hardest part of their work is when babies die. It requires a lot of grief management and support for the mothers, families, and yourself.
For me, I hold midwives in great esteem. I hope to see you become another member of this great profession.
