“In the first place, I wish and desire all midwives

not to bee too forward, or too officious

in their undertakings, least that they disquiet

nature, whose only work it is, and I would

have them to understand, that they bee but

nature’s servants in all motion, hereafter shall

be shewed … And let all midwives bee assured,

that it is not their labours, in pulling, and

haling their women’s bodies, that causeth deliver.

But that it is the work of Dame nature…”Dr Percivall Willughby, MD (1596–1685)

You are a midwife.

You are assisting at someone else’s birth

Do good without show or fuss.

Facilitate what is happening

rather than what you think

ought to be happening.

If you must, take the lead.

Lead so that the mother is helped,

yet still free and in charge.

When the babe is born

the mother will rightly say,

“We did it ourselves”

Lao Tsu,

Tao Te Ching, 5th Century B.C.
