Midwifery - A Calling and a Passion
“I'm educated to be an artist and a teacher and I am called to midwifery.” (Maggie Bennett)
One of the purposes of this blog is to inform the public about the work of midwives. Northern California midwife, Maggie Bennett stood out to me as an outstanding example of the work, philosophy and gentle attention that midwives give; she incorporates the values intrinsic to the midwifery model of care and believes that her work is a vocation (a word derived from Latin vocātiō, meaning 'a call').
There is a very good 3 and a half minute video on her home page, produced and aired by a local news station (Fox). I invite readers to review it. http://www.midwifemaggie.com/desktop/
