Happy International Day of the Midwife! 

______________________
My oldest sister was delivered 

by Caesarean section

The one who followed her had forceps.

But the first words I heard

As I was born

“I think she’d like to do it by herself”

I took to heart.

The first person who showed her faith in me

Was a midwife.
