At 53, Is it too late to train as a Midwife. Am a Shiatsu Practitioner and Tai Ji Instructor?

I always wanted to be in the medical field but also had head for figures. Currently working as a Company Accountant. I just helped deliver by Great Nephew (28 Nov 06) and now feel the urge to train as a midwife. I am a fully qualified Shiatsu Practitioner and also teach Tai Ji & Qigong. What are my chances?

It’s never too late to train as a Midwife. I went to a midwife class, support for my friend, and there were a bunch over OLDER people in the class. The oldest person in the class was actually 68, she wanted to help deliever her grandson.. If you want it go for it, don’t have any regrets!
