The theme for this year's International Day of the Midwife is "Midwives, Mothers & Families: Partners for Life".
When we reached out to the families in the Headwater Hills region to participate in a project supporting our local midwifery practice Midwives of Headwater Hills, we were overwhelmed by the response.
To the incredible Midwives of Headwater Hills, both past and present thank you for all that you do! We look forward to celebrating with you at your Annual Picnic at the end of the month.
This blog is for you and it is from the very babies you welcomed into the world!
You supported my Mommy even after we were born and she was recovering and having trouble breastfeeding me.
A happy Mommy makes for a happy baby so thank you Kylie, Emilia, Stephanie, Suzanne and Jenna ️
Love, Marley and Everly Letterio
Stephanie I'm really sorry my Mom yelled at you when she got the needle in her leg from you. She didn't mean to hurt your feelings. Cameron, born June 3 2014 at HHCC
You were one of the very first faces I saw, and boy am I so happy it was your smiling and kind face. I have so many things to thank you for!
It all started when I was in Mommy's tummy still, you were so comforting and reassuring when my mommy was worried about me, you kept a close watch on me and made sure my mommy knew all her options, helping to guide her to plan for my birth and what would be safest for both of us.
I will be forever grateful for the loving and nurturing way you helped me into this world.

I couldn't imagine entering the world any other way than under your care.

What you do means so much to so many. Thank you for being such a big part of my life! You helped bring me into this world – Emilia’s was the first face I saw! I bet that wasn't how you were planning on spending your Valentine's Day, but I'm glad you were there. I didn't know how to smile then, but I love to smile now!
Thanks again! I'm going to go bug mommy for some dinner now.
