TLC: What are Jana's plans for a career - is she interested becoming a midwife?

Michelle: Jana has helped with a doula. She hasn't worked alongside with an actual midwife yet. She's assisted with labor and delivery, kind of getting her feet wet to see if she really likes that realm of work. She's verbalized to us that she would like to assist with labor and delivery, but she doesn't know for sure if that's really the location that she would want to be in for the long term. She thinks it might be something that she might get a little bit of training in because she wants to have some skills to prepare her for her own self as well as to help others, but not really as a career.

It's interesting, she's doing some music studies, and she's pursuing some more in-depth harp. There's good money to be made in harp playing, because it's not something a lot of people do. She still enjoys all of the other music as well, and she teaches. Music is something she really likes to do. I wouldn't be surprised if she became a music teacher eventually. I mean, I don't know, but with her pursuing more of the music studies right now, I wouldn't be surprised if that's something that she ends up going into.
