100 word blog challenge about midwives!

100 words on how midwives influenced my first birth experience.

Midwives-  measured, tested, weighed, advised, reassured,  answered endless stupid questions.

Midwives-offered choices, options, positions, knowledge on how, when, where to give birth.

Midwives, held my hand, stroked my hair, went shoulder deep into murky water in my birthing pool to keep an expert ear on my baby still inside me.

Midwives took charge, made changes, used their wisdom and experience to know when it was time to use technology and drugs to hasten delivery.

Me and that baby-both alive today because of trained midwives.
