I am a gift giver, and plan on giving both my doula and midwife a gift of appreciation after the birth (assuming things go well jk of course!)
so what are some good gifts for these type of people?
My doula has twin boys, a 18m old daughter and is preg and due in August...her hubby works a lot so she's home alone alot. I thought a spa day gift card or something might be nice? idk?
My CNM is an avid triathlon-er, but works a lot. (She does 90% of the CNM deliveries at the hospital we're delivering at this time...and granted it's "slow" because it's new, she still stays pretty busy, because she's also in clinic 5 days a week)...she has 5 kids, and a cat

I usually give homemade baked goods, but that's just me. I like the idea of a spa day for your doula- maybe a prenatal massage? What about a pedicure for your CNM? If she is an athlete, she probably doesn't pamper her feet too often.
You could try Blessingway on Etsy. She makes these awesome bellies out of polymer clay. She has ones that are for all sorts of different things, like breech baby, being a midwife, etc. Just go to Etsy and then pick seller and type in Blessingway. I have about 10 of them, mostly customized, and I love them.

Oh my goodness, Jenn! Those are just awesome! Perfect for my midwife. I was also racking my brain on what to get her. She is 100% crunchy, green, etc. and I just couldn't figure out something unique for her and she would appreciate! Thanks for posting!
Thank you for my beautiful siggy Vicki!
