Now that Christmas is over…..
I can share some of the homemade gifts…
The blanket was a gift for a little baby girl named after me! Yep. Unbelievable. The same week that I had a most devastating experience in the Birth Room, I also had a little tiny baby girl named after me. Her middle name. When the parents told me at the 24 hour home visit – amidst the playing children, the weighing of the baby, I just burst into tears. I actually sobbed. I was so overjoyed. This isn’t something that happens to Midwives in America,. I don’t think so. Not often.
Anyhow – this little girl will now receive a present from me every Christmas. It will become a tradition.
