hello! my name is laura, i am 20 years old and i have a 2 year old daughter.
i plan to apply to university next year to do a degree in midwifery but am really worried in about not being able to do the clinical placements that are compulsory for practice in the degree. what if i am given night shifts, holidays or weekends? what would i do during hours or days that my daughters nursery is closed?
i am getting really upset the more i think about it as i have always wanted to be a midwife and really have a passion for it.surely there must be some kind of flexibility for people with children?
did you have children when at uni and if so, what did you do?
are you a midwife now and have children? what hours do you work?
your help would be greatly appreciated!!
