How do I get on the path to become a midwife?

I'm a junior in high-school right now and I already know I want to be a midwife. However, I don't know how I would start on that path and I would like to figure it out before I start my senior year. I feel as though Google didn't real help and I thought I'd try here.

I want to become a Licensed Midwife, but don’t know where to start?

I am currently going into my second year of college this upcoming fall semester as a Biology major. I wanted to become a doctor, but got conflicted. After taking time to reflect on my future and what I ACTUALLY want, I’ve decided to go into the Midwifery route! I am attending a community college and plan to transfer in a year or two, definitely a Cal State (fullerton, long beach, l.a or northridge). Only thing is, I don’t know where to start. My counselor told me it would be best to switch my majors but don’t know if I should go into Nursing or health science?! I am lost and in need of assistance please :( #college #midwifery

What is the most difficult aspect of living your life on-call, and how do you cope with it?

I am currently studying to be a CPM/LM (essentially, an out-of-hospital midwife), a career that involves being on-call for births or other needs by mothers 24/7. So, I would like to learn more about others' experiences with the on-call life, particularly what they found to be the hardest part for them and what coping methods they have found that work (or don't work) for them. #midwifery #homebirth #oncall #midwife #healthcare

New student, Medical Assistant! What is the BEST path to take to be a midwife?

I'm 32yrs old and a mother of 2 boys! I've wanted to help deliver babies since I can remember. I have witnessed two babies to friends and one to my sister be born. It was AMAZING!!! I've been out of Hight School for 16yrs now. So I feel very lost when it comes to the best choices regarding school. I have many friends that are nurses but not in the same path. Asking them for advise really only confused me more. I don't want to make the wrong choices when it comes to school and what classes to take. What is my best path, with the goal of being a midwife or labor and delivery nurse? #doctors #nurse-midwife #midwifery

As a midwife how do you deal with handling a parent when the child does not make it?

Hi I am a student at Achievement First Brooklyn High School, and I'm interested in being a midwife because I want to bring life into the world. I am scared of losing someone's child and having to see the pain that the parent has to go through. #midwifery

When being a nurse midwife, how do you deal with patients that don't listen?

I am asking this question because, even though I want to be a singer, I really want to be a nurse midwife and help soon to be mothers. I'd like to know what I should do if a patient is acting up and not listening to me. #nurse #nurse-midwife #midwifery
