Midwifery School Isn’t Perfect

Midwifery School Isn’t Perfect

Last week,   At Your Cervix wrote an interesting post about the things she wishes she had learned in Midwifery School. A great read for anyone still in school, or planning to attend school soon.  Why?  Because it can help you focus time on learning these things.

I add extra agreement to points 2 and 3.  These issues are so important for women to find birth control that works well for them, but it was very under-taught in my program as well.

I moved into research rather than practice, so I don’t have much to add to this list relevant to working with patients.  So I need to rely on you, dear readers.

What things do you wish you had learned?
