Hey. I am applying to the midwifery program at my local university in January for next September. I am pro-choice, and have been thinking a lot lately if there are a lot of pro-choice midwives. Anywas, I am glad to see this community.

Thank you for joining! I am a student midwife & doula and I'm very pro-choice. I'm not sure if you've come across this at all, but at least where I live (in CA of all places) I feel like people have to be very quiet about being pro-choice if they want to work as a midwife. It seems strange to me that there aren't more pro-choice midwives, so it occured to me that they might just be afraid to speak up.

Yeah I would imagine that midwives have to be careful about being political. It never came up with my midwives, but I now wonder if my primary midwife is pro-choice because she had a political party sign up in the last election (at her house, not the clinic) that is left-wing and pro-choice.

Are you certified through any doula org? If I don't get in next year, I am thinking of becoming a doula in the mean time.

I'm working on ALACE certification. I really like their style and it's less expensive than DONA or CAPPA.

It is kinda sad. I am wondering if they are going to address this in school. Good luck with school:)
