Why do women (and yes, some men) become midwives? In the latest video from the new series, I am a Midwife, eight midwives with diverse backgrounds and practicing in different settings in the US and Canada--home, hospital and birth centers--share their stories of what led them to midwifery. For some, it started with their own birth; for others it was a deeply felt "calling," a way to be part of the "solution" of improving birth outcomes and experiences for women and their babies. Inspiring, moving and at times hilarious, I am a Midwife Because...provides an inside look at what moves women to do the important work of being a midwife. Part 1 of 2. Part 2 coming next week!
