Just wanted to share this little gem - a bit of humor tonight!
I'm stunned! All of this hard work I'm putting in, all these classes I'm taking, all of the four hours of homework I did tonight, and all of the time away from my precious babies! All of this I'm going through in order to be the most educated, competent, balanced CNM and it isn't necessary?? All I really have to do is go to the library and read a few childbirth and medical books? Well I'll be!! I've read numerous childbirth books and quite a few nursing books! Guess I'm already a CNM - now who wants to let me deliver their sweet little one?
Really though. In all seriousness. I can only hope and pray this statement isn't believed as true by many. Equating the education of a CNM or OB to that of someone who simply goes to the library and reads a few books on pregnancy and birth is just insane.
Where is the logic? Where are the facts? Where is the truth?
