Barb Herrera began working in birth in 1983 as a doula, then CPM, LM. She writes at Navelgazing Midwife and the Navelgazing Midwife Facebook Page. She has three children, two who were born out-of-hospital. After leaving midwifery, she found her CPM did not qualify her for any other work. She eventually became a Phone Sex Operator. Barb says while she is proud of her new sex positive work, it is a bit absurd to move from midwifery to being a sex worker. She ends by saying, "I feel like a Cautionary Tale."
