I have my LAST ( ) appt with my midwife office on July 16. This will be the last time they will care for me. I had four midwives (Grace, June, Annie, Susie). I barely saw Grace, I had Annie for the majority of my prenatal appts, and Susie and June were at Thuya's birth. I want to send them a gift to show how much I appreciate the amazing care they provided for Thuya and I. I am going to write them all individual handmade cards, but what would you suggest as a gift? Should I send a gift to the office as a whole or do it individually? I just don't want it to get too expensive... Thanks for the help!

I wish I could be more helpful, but I think it's a wonderful idea. Maybe a big gift basket or a big arrangement of flowers (not to big to be costly though) or if you could do it, an edible arrangement? Then send that as one big gift to them all and send the cards with it but for each midwife.

Just a thought! I love the idea

I know this is past your last appt. but thought I'd chime in anyhow!

I made gift baskets of natural candles and soaps with a beautiful angel decoration in each. They were varying sizes for those who helped most to least. I gave a small one to the birth center front desk gal, and to both my midwives and their assistants. Special cards for each. It wasn't very expensive either because I bought everything in bulk and put them together myself. Got the baskets at the dollar store (and they were cool ones too!). I used that plastic film that shrinks with a hair dryer and beautiful ribbons. I actually delivered these AFTER my last appointment. They were all thrilled.

The world today is upside down because there is so very little love in the home, and in family life. We have no time for each other. Everybody is in such a terrible rush, and so anxious…and in the home begins the disruption of the peace of the world.

Awww, I hated that last appointment!

Sorry I didn't see this in time...but what did you end up doing?

I went to cafepress.com to buy gifts for my midwives. The one that I didn't see as often got a ceramic tile with the "the secret is that women are strong" saying on it, and my main midwife got a jewelry box with a ceramic tile inset on the top, with a beautiful (kind of abstract) painting of a pregnant woman on top. They had a lot of neat stuff there!

Well my appt got pushed back to Jul 25th, but I decided to get a gift basket with locally made edible goodies in it. I hope they enjoy it!
