Is this poster the perfect present for your midwife?

This is the full version of the poem ‘The Being Midwife’ that went viral on facebook and the most popular poster.

It’s a great and unique gift for that special midwife.

This poster was written with love.

It helps midwives get up in the morning and remember why they do what they do.

This poem has been known to make midwives cry! (in a good way!)

You could even write your own message on the back to make it even more personal.

This is a gift they will never forget.

The poster is available in A4 or A3.

It’s for the midwife who gave that little bit extra and helped in just the way you needed when you needed her most ?

The Being Midwife

She understood her craft, her confidence inspired

Calmly waiting near my side, as the birth transpired

And though I had fears, brought about from tales of old

She showed no trace of doubt, like a goddess strong and bold


For she’d got to know me over time, she’d got to know my way

And she could tell how far I’d gone from what I did convey

She didn’t have to make small talk or ask about my aim

Coz she already knew my plan, our philosophies were the same


She checked my baby’s heartbeat, to see it was alright

And if all was well, I decided we would just sit tight

But she didn’t look inside me, so as not to spoil my flow

The measurements mean so little, we didn’t need to know


I’d created my own space and my midwife left me to it.

Her quiet confidence gave me belief that I could do it.

And I’m grateful for that trust that my midwife showed in me

For the time she allowed, so birth could happen naturally


No-one even said a word, during contractions all was quiet

A cloak of trust enwrapped the place,

Allowing full concentration, this was my space,

Relaxing, breathing, my birth attendants sheathing me from believing each surge was bigger than myself.

I was doing everything I needed to, heeding the wisdom of our ancestral mothers; those mothers who got us here

With a midwife who showed no fear.


So I’m grateful for the trust that my midwife showed in me

And the time she allowed so birth could happen naturally

For I think the mental states of the people at your side

Are an influential force when your aims are unified!
