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

- Advertisement -

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?

Very good chances! Go for it!!


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!

It’s never too late to learn /train for something new


Actually all you need is a catchers mitt and you’re in business. seriously, most Midwives today are also at least an LpN, or RN. So what if your’re 53, go for it girl.


It’s not too late, but as an accountant, you need to evaluate the following:
Years of study required
Cost of training
balanced against
Years you plan to work after training
Potential income during those years
If you plan to become a certified nurse midwife, you’ll need a nursing degree, plus your midwifery training. That will cost you in years and tuition. It doesn’t make sense to accumulate tens of thousands of dollars in debt if you’re going to retire a few years later.
Another option would be to become a doula, which is someone who helps laboring moms during labor and delivery. Learn more here:
It might fit in well with your alternative/natural healing mindset.
Whatever you choose to do, best of luck!
