So, I have been in prayer about becoming a midwife. How should I got about it? When should I do it? Am I sure its my "calling"? I don't want to neglect my home and family in order to do this. And as I was praying about these things and why I wanted to be a midwife, I had this thought. I want to be a midwife because I believe in most cases birth can be a natural and wonderful process as God intended it to be without intervention...so why does only the birth process matter to me? I guess it stands out to me because I love babies and had bad hospital birth experiences, but really this is a bigger issue! This is about a complete lifestyle change. We should also be living day to day a natural and wonderful way that God intended for us too. So, our family has some huge changes to make. We need to change our eating habits and our lifestyle habits, and we really need to become more aware of what we are putting into our bodies and how we are choosing to live and treat our bodies. This is going to be a long and hard journey for all of us, but I feel like it is a big step we are being led to that I must deal with and learn from before/as part of this midwife journey I am making. So here we go!
On another note, my sister is due VERY soon with her first little baby! I am going to be going up there to help out for a weekend after the baby is born, and I'm just so excited I can hardly contain myself! That's all really, I just had to share it because I'm SO DARN EXCITED!!!! =o)
