International Midwives Day

Yesterday was International Midwives Day. If you know a midwife, thank them for the love and energy they invest in healthy, happy families.

This post is dedicated to Melissa, our wonderful midwife (shown here at Doodle's six-week checkup). We love you Melissa!

Midwives are wonderful. We had two homebirths with homebirthing doctors from a homebirthing practice near us. Otherwise, we would have found a midwife.

The countries with more midwife attended births have healthier outcomes for both the mamas and the babies--go figure...

I got to see Melissa for prenatals a couple of times. She's super nice. :o)
