  • Salary and need. I would add love, except right now, I'm not loving it because there isn't enough to do!

  • All of the above, too! It's taking me FOREVER to finish school, but I've always been drawn to pregnant women, and the process of pregnancy and breastfeeding absolutely fascinates me. It doesn't help that midwives can afford to live on their salaries.

  • I have been at my job for almost 27 yrs. For a long time, it was out of love tor the job. Things have changed so much though. I have new boss's who dont care how long I have been there, they keep cramming more and more work down our throats and if we cant do it in the certain amount of time, we get yelled at. Im really looking forward to retiring within the next few years,,,Im so done with this work enviornment b/c it has changed so much over the past few years
