Are you planning on giving a gift or token of your appreciation to the care providers who work with you through birth? What have some of the experienced moms done in the past about thanking care providers after birth?
I've read that it's a good idea to have something (nice bag of candy or a token of appreciation) for the nurses who spend a lot of time with you during labor. I've had an atypical experience with obs this pregnancy (I'm not thanking the ob who dropped me at 35 weeks, for instance....), but the ob who picked me up has been really great and I appreciate her stepping in. Not sure if she'll actually end up delivering the baby, but if not, certainly a card at the least.
Any stories or suggestions you want to share are appreciated, since I'm trying to gather a variety of opinions!
