I know this topic has come up from time to time and I came across this idea from my cousin, who is an artist.  Everything from a greeting card to small or large prints of her painting of a pregnant woman.

Another thing I did for my midwife a few years ago is make a photo book for her of pictures of my daughter's birth and the story.  She loved it.

 

While we're on the subject what else do YOU think is a good gift idea for a birth attendant?  Please share!

I've never really understood the need for gifts for the birth attendant(s).  Maybe I'm just crazy, but it seems like paying $3,000 - $5,000+ is a big enough gift!  On top of that, a thoughtful thank you card is probably all I'd do.
