I've started a group for Midwives in the Making on Facebook. You can find it here, and if you click 'join' I'll find your request.
I started The Secret Community For Midwives In The Making group (and in fact my site in general) because I believe advice for people wanting to become midwives, student midwives, and midwives themselves should be high quality, uncensored, and free where possible.
Having said that, I have to keep Midwives Diaries going and support myself, so I can keep writing and producing resources! This means I sell my book 'Becoming a Student Midwife' on Amazon, a book which distills all my research and experience, and takes you step by step through the process of becoming a midwife. I also offer professional services for those who want extra coaching one on one.
But the idea is you can find anything you need for free on here, or you can use the community for support. I also try really hard to respond to all messages - although these days I get so many you may find what you're looking for quicker on the Secret Community!
I want to give you all these resources because it will help you earn a place on a midwifery course – but also because it will make you into a better candidate and a better student midwife once you hit the deck. And that makes the profession better!
So, if you have confidential question you don't want out in the open, or just want to be in a community of like minded people, come and join us on the 'Secret Community For Midwives in the Making'.
P.S: We're up to nearly 100 members in one day - I thought it might just be me in a weird little secret group, but loads of people want in on it! 🙂
Post edit: The Secret Community For Midwives In The Making group has been around for less than three months and there's now nearly 800 members. Cool!
