Woman Ditches Career In Medicine To 'Serve' Her Husband As A Housewife

A woman has boasted about the benefits of leaving behind a career in medicine to 'serve' her breadwinner husband.

Cynthia Loewen is one of many women who are joining the Tradwife movement, which is where wives stay at home and do all the cooking, cleaning and washing.

The former Miss Earth Canada has started a YouTube channel to explain how much better she feels about her life now that she's dedicated to keeping the home in check.


In one video, she said: "A couple of years ago I was really frustrated with my life.I was not really feeling the calling to become a boss-babe - I was feeling the calling to become a wife and a homemaker...I was supposed to be a doctor.

"My husband is the primary breadwinner and I am in charge of the home.

"Working with my hands around my home does give me satisfaction, so much more compared to any other job that I had.

"I let my husband lead and that is so naturally difficult for me because I am a very stubborn person.


"My husband didn't know when I began doing this, but he felt so much more appreciated and valued."

According to News Corp, Cynthia will apply a full face of makeup, and put on cute outfits and pearls to clean the house top to bottom and complete all the laundry and other miscellaneous tasks.

She'll nip to the gym in the morning and walk the dog before doing the house chores.


Once all that is done, she'll get started on dinner.

"I usually just wait around for my husband to come home and if he comes home late I will just wrap up the dinner and then head to bed," she explains.

Mrs Loewen speaks openly about being a 'homemaker' on her Instagram account and has complained how little representation there is in the media for people like her.


In one Instagram post, Cynthia said: "For several decades we have been inundated with messages portraying the needy, desperate and miserable housewife.

"What we are told is truth, is the image of a woman who usually requires an excess amount of wine to deal with the woes of her family life, or she who has somehow been robbed of reaching her 'full potential'.

"Although we are told to find consolation in the fact that we now have the freedom to choose this road, the undertone of dismissal prevails."

She insists that while a career in medicine might work for some people, she's happy and fulfilled with her life path.
