Yeah Jill Wish you the best in getting your License as a CPN
I don't understand how Jill can speak about wanting to continue in midwifery when everyone knows that their religious beliefs will have her expecting a child herself, year after year? How can she continue studies when wives do not work outside the home. To my knowledge, she hasn't stated that she and Derrick have spoken about this and that he will let her do this and postpone babies, which is contradictory. She clearly loves the work, I wish them well.
Do you have any advice for a student midwife as they are getting ready to start their clinical portion?
Is Jill training "out of the loop"? Or is she taking real classes in a brick and mortar school? What consists of official midwifery training and certification? They don't let us know those things and why is it better to have a midwife deliver at home, rather than at a hospital with all emergency equipment readily available? It is only a matter of money?
I hope Jill is successful in becoming licensed as a CPM next year! It would be unfortunate if, after getting married, she immediately gets pregnant and that makes it so she isn't able to complete the requirements. We need more CPMs!
So happy that Jill is studying to be a midwife-we need more good midwifes in our country! I have had 2 home births and we are planning our 3rd right now (due in August!). I love birthing naturally (even though it's hard and painful! Lol). I think it's the best way (most of the time) for both mamas and their babies. Jill has such a great personality for being a good midwife-she is sweet, capable, intelligent and kind. She's my favorite Duggar girl! :)
I agree with the first comment as continuing her studies is in contrast to their beliefs. Have Derrick and Jill spoken about postponing babies for a while so Jill can continue HER work and become certified, etc and actually have some experience working for herself? They don't address important things, like getting back to people or a real full explanation of anything.
I'd be interested in knowing if Jill and Derrick discussed her continuing her midwifery certification and completing it? Does any one know what their plans are regarding that? Yes, it would seem in direct conflict for her to continue her studies when Jill's belief system is to conceive asap. What are Derrick's beliefs regarding that? Is he willing to have "as many kids as possible right away"?
Jill is a natural health care professional. I do not doubt that she has the ability to be married and complete her midwife training. Derick probably wants her to do that too, he is a professional himself. Together they will make a good team, Jill can deliver the baby and Derick can send out the bill.
I watch this show as much as possible but I never seen the one where Jill & Derrick got engaged in Nepal & I watched the last show. I also haven't seen the one where Jill had a wedding shower. Could u tell me when it will be aired on TV again plz. I love their show & have 2 daughters also.
They started Courting in Nepal. Next weeks episode is where they get engaged and I do believe next week's episode is the season finale. It will be months before we see the episode about wedding shower are the actual wedding.
@AnonymousHi Anonymous 10,Jill's engagement and wedding shower have not been aired on TLC yet. :)~Lily and Ellie
@AnonymousOfficial midwifery training consist of going to school for a couple of years depending on the school. You can either be a nurse midwife or a certified midwife. A nurse midwife went to nursing school first. It's better to have a midwife if you are a low risk mom. If you are a low risk mom there is no need of medical interventions therefore you can birth in the comfort of your own home. Midwives do have emergency equipment if its needed and they are trained in CPR and are trained to see if things start going south. The only difference in medical knowledge between a midwife and OBGYN is that OBGYNs are trained in surgery.
@AnonymousWhy not to deliver in a hospital? Because that's where sick people go to get better, for one. Pregnant people are not sick people. Pregnant people and the baby's they give birth to however, can become quite susceptible to all sorts of diseases coughed out by all of those sick people. The amount of C sections or unnatural interventions is much higher in hospital births. Plenty of civilised countries have very high rates of home birth. Such as The Netherlands, where I'm originally from. I'd say about 50% of people have their babies at home. The ones that don't, have been medically determined. In NL, there isn't even a gyno present in most hospitals after normal work day hours, so you're not always 'closer to emergency staff'. Home birth is preferable on many, many levels. Google is your friend.Your body is plenty capable of birthing a baby, as long as you trust in it. If you're scared at all, the fear induced hormones will stop your uterus from contracting, which will delay progress, reduce the release of pain killing hormones, make it enormously more painful (the contradiction there is ironic!), and raise the risks of unnatural intervention. And who these days, is not afraid of childbirth? After all, tellie only shows the women that are half hysterical. You know, the stuff that makes good tellie. Youtube has some lovely birthing video's of mothers who are not lead by fear. Childbirth, can be virtually painfree, if you want it to be.
Why do people keep asking questions which Jill and Derick have already clarified? They don't want to conceive ASAP. They leave family planning in the Lords hands. There is a difference. Jill and Derick want to take their professions (accountant & midwife) to the overseas mission field. Obviously Jill will complete her training and continue her work. Don't forget she has many many sibling to babysit her and Dericks child while she is working.
And now she is expecting herself :)
Congrats Jill And Derick On Your SonGod Bless, Summer
