Go Ahead. Interview Me.

Ask me anything you'd like.  Ask me why I'd like to be a midwife.  Ask me about how much I want to help women, to help babies, to be present and participate in the process of life beginning and you better believe it, Yale, I will answer.  I will answer articulately, and with poise, and with the knowledge that my black heels are a little bit bad-ass because they are pointy-toed (but it's okay because my gray and black dress is very demure [it helps that I have no cleavage. At all.]).  Ask me why I want to do this for the rest of my life.  Ask me how it felt to watch a baby being born.  Go ahead.  Ask me anything you'd like.  Because I'm ready.  And I'm coming at you, tomorrow morning.

Boo yah.

Hi Caitlin,
I've been following your blog for ages...not sure how I got here.. but am so thrilled for you going to this interview. You will do well. I am a nurse (currently Hospice and case-management) but for 3 years worked on a huge maternity unit doing well-born nursery and post-partum care. It was amazing. Not always pretty and unicorns and butterflies, but mostly really, really good.
Yale! Very cool :) Good luck!
Lisa

Thank you, so much, everyone for your words of support. Today was exhausting, emotional, but ultimately amazing and I am dying for March 1st to come so I can know what I'm doing come September!
