“These students who come through are quite passionate about the midwifery degree before they’ve even started,” Kate says.
“I really enjoy letting them know about the options of this global maternity world we live in to try and inspire them to step out and go beyond.”
Despite her worldly experience, people often ask Kate the same question – how many babies have you delivered in your life and does it get boring?
The answer is no – witnessing the miracle of birth is amazing each time, she says.
“The whole labour experience is horrifically painful but it’s such a worthwhile journey. And then to be with the new parent or parents and play a part in that joy is an absolute honour,” Kate says.
“Even when things go wrong, to be able to experience and be a part of that with families who are either exceedingly happy or incredibly sad, it’s a real honour.
“It’s those real and raw emotions and that make midwifery amazing.”
