I am very excited to announce my new plans for the future.
I have registered for college and plan to become a certified-nurse midwife!
If all goes according to plan I should be entering my final year of schooling in 2020 (hence the name of this post and the new name for the blog).
Bump, Birth, Baby is not gone forever, I plan to change the focus of the blog to documenting my studies, interesting things I learn, and it will be a place where I can vent about the stresses of school. When I return back to “Bump, Birth, Baby”, it will be as a CNM and I will focus on building my new network of referrals I can send clients to.
Going to school was something I thought I’d never do. For a moment I regretted not going straight out of high school, but then I realized there is NO WAY I would have EVER gone for nursing let alone midwifery. It is going to be a long journey but as one of my co-workers says to me frequently in regards to schooling, “7 years is going to pass anyway and at the end of it you can be doing what you’re doing now or have a new career”. Truly though, I know I am not getting that late of a start. I should be a CNM the same year I turn 30.
Your support on the journey means to world to me. I cannot do this alone and I appreciate all the people rooting me on and giving me the tools to succeed.
Stay tuned for more updates, a fundraising campaign, and lots of new knowledge about bumps, births, and babies.
