We may be embarking on our Birth Empowered adventure, but we're real registered midwives. We've both given up careers, spent thousands of pounds on education, pushed ourselves beyond expectations and worked REALLY hard to be able to call ourselves midwives. And why? Midwifery doesn't pay that well, and Birth Empowered is not about the profit. We did it all because we really want to make a difference and a change.
This is heartfelt and we're determined.
