Why did you decide to be a midwife?
Vocation! I wanted to become a midwife since I was a girl of five years. I have always loved the women who worked at the maternity in the hospital and decided to become one. The very first time when I helped a woman to give birth I was very proud and couldn’t stop to admire the color of the baby’s skin, its features, its smell. With every birth my love for this profession has further grown.
