Boise doesn’t really have this service, and I love pregnancy and child birth that I think that this is a perfect match (and yes I’ve seen the whole process). I’ve always had a huge interest in birth and almost made a career out if it if there was a mid-wife program in Boise when I was looking at different professions.
