I'm thinking about two things (one or the other) -
1) one of my friends just started a house cleaning business, and I was thinking of giving my mw a gift certificate for a couple hours of cleaning. I'm worried that something like that will be an odd gift - her house isn't dirty, but she is a busy unschooling mama on top of being a mw, so I thought maybe she'd like the break.
2) A child's felt midwife set from Mama's Felt Cafe (http://www.etsy.com/listing/84145686/felt-midwife-playset) - I love Brittany's work, and I've already talked to her about ordering. The only drawback of course is that it wouldn't be ready until well after baby arrives.
They are both about the same cost - $50. Is that an average amount to spend?
Oh, and I'm also gifting the midwife and her assistant with some homemade apple butter and a handmade holiday ornament at the birth - but those are out of love, I'm not adding them to the total
