Hello Carla, I really wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the payment plan you offered for the ITM course, I could not have done it otherwise.
Everyone I've talked to that is familiar with the AAMI has nothing but good to say about it's programs, I have been told it is the hardest, most comprehensive midwifery program. That, in my mind, can only mean it is the best. I am excited and honoured to be a student of AAMI.
You have been such an inspiration to me over the last 2 years I have been involved in the “birth activism world.” I first considered having an unassisted birth before ever even hearing the term after I saw your Trust Birth Initiative web page, I thought that if I trusted birth so much, why would I “need” a doctor or a midwife?!? I was glad to know that. A doula and Trust Birth facilitator named Chris Anne Johnson really helped me in a time of great need and despair, we talked on the phone and she validated my concerns and helped me immensely. When I realised she was mostly preaching the gospel of “Trust Birth” I was drawn to the TBI and eventually, AAMI.
I don't know if one person can change the world, but, I know that one person has changed my world and, I can only hope, the world of my children.
The information from the Trust Birth Initiative stepped in to my mind, like a memory out of nowhere that was long forgotten, like an impulse I had deeply suppressed. With that information came power. It was as if I suddenly had other senses, all the worlds within the world and above and beyond it were unfolded all around me. Soon, I was drunk with knowledge, raging with power. I was still me, but, I was more than me. My body, my birthing ability was mine again, to do with as I desired, as I needed. Everything that had been taken from me, from the woman I was, was returned, and it brought friends, making me the woman I am. Thank you so very much, Carla. Your hard work and dedication is so valuable to me.
I am so glad you have not quit what you do, for if you had, I may never have become the woman I am. I am only 23, and I only started thinking about 'birthy' things when I was 21 AFTER I'd been sliced and diced at my ‘friendly neighbourhood’ hospital... I know it must be a drain on you in every conceivable way, but, I want you to know it is not hopeless, all is not lost, there are women who believe in the same things you do, who still feel their primal urge to birth unhindered over all the tech and myth that confronts them everyday. I know, because I am one of them. It's just that, some of us need a sledge-hammer to wake up! Now that I am awake, I've awaken my close circle of friends, who have yet to have children. That means AT LEAST 4 women and god-knows how many babies who will benefit from your hard work.
You may very well be dipping water out of the ocean with a teaspoon, but you are NOT alone and the sky IS falling. But, in the end, as my ever-wise cousin Jesse says, ‘it will all come out in the wash.’ Eventually everything comes around. I am going to work hard for the rest of my life to make sure it happens by the end of it, if I have to.
