have had another thought - if you are on facebook, there is a forum called something like "behind every obsterician is a midwife to save their ass" or something! you can post all sorts of queries etc, and just read a lot of midwife's views on various things!!

I was thinkin of becomming a peads nurse or a mw. When lo a little older I will go back and do my GCSE maths (failed misrabley (sp?) first time round) unless I can get work to put me forward for my NVQ 3 again. I got it last year with 2 years of trying but ended up falling pg so had to give it to the other girl who went for it
Well done again and good luck

hi pumpkin patch! dont be disheartened, just keep trying!! if you are not yet back at work, consider doing your Maths now - i say this, as it is a a lot easier studying when you not having to juggle kids, work & study. i did my degree part time once qualified, and took a year off when i had my first. i then went back to work, back to uni and had to juggle childcare etc - mine is my mum, but i felt that i put on her anyway, so asking her to do more.......!
when i had my second, i had him about 2 weeks after i submitted one paper, then went back when he was 7 weeks old, and it was so much easier only thinking about the childcare for one afternoon a week.
i didnt feel as guilty asking my mum to look after them when i needed to write up either!
however, dont let me put you off studying & working with kids either - nursing & midwifery really are both great jobs, and 3 years of training goes very quickly!!

Am already back at work and have asked about NVQ's but was told to ask again in September. Just there is always loads of people wanting to do it and only very few places spread over different departments. It's affording to do my maths again aswell. Plus there may be a few more problems arriving in the near future. So I may end up having to wait anyway. Life sucks sometimes!!

Life after miscarriage
Just wondering how people coped after having their miscarriage. Did you take anytime off work? If so how long? I've been back in work for 4 weeks but wondering if I came back too soon? I work in a pre-school so surrounded by children. One of the Mums is pregnant and due the same time I was which really upset me. Feel like…
