It's Official, I'm a CPM!
Life is busy with family, school, health issues, birthing moms, etc. so I totally forgot to update here!
I sat for the NARM exam in February and found out in March that I passed. I was so excited to get my CPM certificate in the mail! So that is a HUGE goal that I have finished!
That said, certification/papers/licensure don't make a safe a midwife. I will say that I didn't need NARM or the CPM to make me a good midwife. My education and experience do that. Please ladies, don't hire a midwife based on the initials after her name.
My father died in October 2012 and one thing that I learned from him over the years is that the day is wasted if we haven't learned something. And so my research, studies, conferences and such will continue.
