Career doula

I need a career doula. I need a little hand-holding right now, a little reassurance. Not the pats on the back that Facebook provides (which I do appreciate), but someone who can look me in the eye and ask me the hard questions and push me. That's what I need.

My husband is really good at that but I think what I want is someone objective of the situation. Someone who isn't attached.

I'm trying to figure out what I need to do and it's interesting that I'm actually farther away from midwifery school than I thought/knew I was. I figured it was taking a few classes and GO! Alas, because their program changed (woo hooooo!!!!), the pre-reqs are more involved. I basically should just finish my AAS.

I'm feeling somewhat overwhelmed by that prospect, but excited too. I can take courses here and there as I can afford it, thus getting time behind me where my kids can get a little older (namely my sweet tot) before I head to midwifery school. It all works out, but.. it kinda takes my breath away a little bit.

I'm in the midst of setting up a potluck get-together with the local doulas/birth folk to celebrate International Doula Month. I'm stoked to see everyone who can hopefully make it! It's been quite a long time since we've had a networking opportunity on the peninsula. I hope lots of people show up.

Okay, so back to the school thing. I need to make lists or something, I feel like I need a map of what's up ahead. 1. talk to admissions at midwifery school. 1. talk to advisor at the local community college to see what I have and what I need. 3. Figure out a plan to get some classes happening soon. 4. Dream up some fancy way of making the money to pay for said classes.

Easy enough, right? Ugh. Right.

Maybe even look at different schools? Different philosophies, different requirements. I would love to connect after I get back from my adventure.
