The word midwife comes from Anglo-Saxon words: mid = with and wif = woman. Midwife means someone who is with the woman in her labour. In French, a midwife is a sage-femme, which means a wise woman providing care.
Thank you for coming out in the rain to socialize and share food! We admit it was a bit crowded in the clinic, but so lovely to see those families who turned up. Our annual picnic potluck is a highlight for us as we have the pleasure of seeing the babies we catch growing into toddlers… and beyond. Next year will be the 10th anniversary of Sages-Femmes Rouge Valley Midwives and plans are already in the works for our biggest celebration so far. Some photos from the day:
