I did not start out to become a midwife. But my journey through nursing school led me first to be a labor and delivery nurse, and then a midwife. I will always be a midwife.
I traveled to Haiti for the first time in 2003. I left there a different woman than I came. Women in Haiti are 70 times more likely than women in the U.S. to suffer and die from preventable conditions during pregnancy and childbirth.
