A little about myself
I'm Gloria, a 23 years old student midwife.
Born and raised in Messina, Sicily, with a big dream: becoming a great midwife!
Bewitched by some Italian videotapes about pregnancy and labour, (and revealing the truth to my 6y old classmates of course in tears after the destroyed myth of the stork & cabbage babies!) I found out this is my life vocation and I started gathering information, reading and learning.
I decided to move from Italy because of the unbearable medicalisation of childbirth and doctors looking down on midwives and mothers.
I moved to learn how to support birth and women, believing in their inner strength!
About the website
I decided to start a website to provide some interesting material for mothers, families, students and midwives. I will gather up my experience as a student midwife in different wards (antenatal, delivery suite & postnatal), info from different books & articles, collect examples of positive childbirth, mother-family empowerment and blessed moments from this rewarding profession.
