Ask yourself this; what could be more beautiful than bringing new life into the world? My answer is nothing. Nothing is more beautiful than being apart of the natural process of life. I believe that giving birth has got to be one of the most fearful yet life changing and important events a woman will go through in her life and I consider the most crucial factor in this case to be the care of the midwife. Midwifery became a passion of mine when my sister went into labour and had to go through this stressing and painful time without a caring midwife.

During my course last year, I took part in a health promotion and my topic that I was focusing on was teenage pregnancy.

I also have a part time job in a fast food restaurant. From working within this type of environment and coming into contact with members of the public, i have learnt how to work under a vast amount of pressure.
