If you've answered the call to serve, but don't have enough calls for your service, your training and skills are being under-utilized and you know it. Nothing hurts a Healer more than having a gift to give, but no one to give it to. I know exactly how you feel, because I've been there. Twenty years ago I was a new Midwife with a new practice and a vision of changing the paradigm of birth in this country, one birth, one family at a time. But nobody knew who I was and I lost valuable time struggling to survive as I built my practice. Now it’s my mission to help others successfully navigate the business of professional birth-work.
Struggle Less. Succeed More.
That is my wish for you today.
Midwives of Color are enthusiastically encouraged to apply to Mentoring Midwives & More!!! I am part of the movement committed to redressing the imbalance of Midwives of Color in our communities. Fee reductions based on financial need are available throughout the year. Contact me for further information.
"Mine was the first baby born under the Awakenings brand! My story would not be unusual if not for the fact that Deborah's support changed the course of my life, and as a result, the lives of many other mother-and-baby dyads. Inspired by my experience with Deborah, I did not return to my chosen field of marketing but embraced the role of full-time breastfeeding mother, earning my La Leche League Leader accreditation and Certified Lactation Counselor designation, helping hundreds of mothers and babies establish and maintain healthy breastfeeding relationships."
