Have you given birth at home? With a midwife or without?

No, but I hope to one day!

What is your most profound birth memory?

I shadowed a natural birth of twins. They both started nursing right away and held hands. It was so calm and incredibly empowering.

What would you like to discuss at meetings?

I would love to hear stories from mothers about their experiences, as well as get career advice from midwives and birth professionals.

Are you a childbirth professional?

Not yet...I hope to be a homebirth midwife in the future though.

What do you have to offer this group? What would you like to get from it?

I'm studying predictive health, specifically nutrition in the womb. As I'm diving deeper into my research, I hope to explore the ways in which how you're born into this world have greater impacts on your health. I'm hoping to hear everyone's stories, whatever their role in birth is.

Introduction

Hey everyone! I'm a junior at Emory studying predictive health. After I graduate I'm planning to become a CPM! I always knew I wanted midwife-attended home births, but after shadowing I've decided I want to make a career of it too.
