I have an assistant now. I'll have to think of a good name for her. She's a really super sweet lady, really smart, and our personalities mesh really well. After only three births with me, she is already fantastic at setting up, cleaning up, charting, etc. Sure, she has stuff to learn, but she makes my job so much easier!
Once I get my CPM I will begin signing off skills for her and she will be my apprentice. The teaching role is really fun. This is going to add an entirely new dimension to midwifery, I am sure.
