I've been thinking through what I want to do. Finding a preceptor is proving impossible. So the next options are a year at Maternidad La Luz or a few stints at Casa de Nacimiento
MLL is really my first choice. It's a complete program, everything would be done in a year's time and I would have direction to keep me on task. (I'm a master procrastinator) but it would mean the whole family going which means the house we're in either has to be sold, which this house sat for a year before we bought it. Or we have to have enough money saved to take care of payments on this house for a year. Nathan wants $20K in savings to make sure we don't default on this house.
I'm really feeling like this is just an impossible feat at this point. We seem to have an impossible time saving money. I could go get a job, but it would have to be after Nathan is home in the evenings and really, I wonder how much I can really make. AAMI is a minimum of 4 years and I still need a preceptor after that. I'm definitely sticking with AAMI, I think it's a very comprehensive course and an excellent continuing education opportunity. I don't think that it's necessary to start assisting in births though.
Anyone want to send donations?
