I am having a home birth with a midwife. Is it customary to give your midwife a gift after the birth?

I've been wondering that as well. We plan to write up our version of the birth story and give that to her along with photos from the birth. In addition I'm thinking of getting her a gift card to a local bookstore or something like that. I'm not sure what is customary, but I feel like she's such a part of our family now and wanted to get her a little something at least.

I found a really nice bath spa set that I got her. Glad I thought of it early.

with my first baby, my mom and i were preggo together(we had the same midwife) and we got some professional pics taken of us both while we were preggo and then made a collage type thing and got it framed. it looked really great. she now has it on her wall in her office! :-D for this baby, i was thinking of a gift cert. to get a massage or something.
