I love how I have heard some midwives describe their involvement in the birth process. They say "I received a baby today". What a beautiful way of describing your involvement in the birth process. I think it has helped me to understand my own role. When I am with a woman birthing, I am also receiving something beyond the baby. I am gaining insight, a connection, and a relationship that would not have otherwise existed. I feel a deep sense of gratitude to help receive babies into this world.
