So last summer, I was scanning through Netflix one day looking for something good to watch, and this documentary caught my eye. It’s called The Business of Being Born, directed by Abby Epstein and produced by Ricki Lake. It seemed pretty interesting, so I popped it on and settled in. I was mesmerized. That hour and a half began a journey of research, discovery, and dreams for me.
Something important to know about me: Once I’ve decided something, it’s DONE. And I think the idea of becoming a midwife quickly morphed into a goal, and I began trying to figure out how to make it happen. I start at Maternidad La Luz (god willing, still waiting for acceptance!) next September, and I couldn’t be more excited. This is me. My calling. My passion. And I can’t imagine it any other way!
