Will you be getting your midwife a gift after you give birth? For our BTDT mamas, did you do a gift afterwards?

I did get my midwife a gift. She always wears scrubs to births, so I bought her a scrub shirt and embroidered it with her name and a birth quote. She loved it!

It's certainly not a requirement LOL Some people give a gift as simple as a photo of the baby, a card, or a plate of cookies. Some give more expensive gifts. I spent about $15.

I was thinking about getting her and her BA a midsize Scentsy warmer with a couple of Scentsy bars. Think it is appropriate? A friend of mine knitted her midwife a Uterus model.

I gave her a photobook with pictures from two of my births. With Eleanor she was pregnant and due just a few weeks after me and I got her a newborn session with a local photographer. She's also my best friend so I wanted to do something special

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.
