Seeing a midwife

We were going to see a midwife,yesterday.Naturally Babushka the curious kitten wanted to know all about Midwives.

“Is the midwife a Doctor?” she asked. No the midwife is someone who helps the Doctor.

“Oh!so,is she a nurse?”came the next question.. No she is not a nurse. She will take care of mommy when there is a baby in her tummy.

“Achcha…so,she is a special person who takes care of little girls mommies,when they have babies in their tummies”..

Yes,baby she is.. 🙂 All this while SD,kept shaking his head and mouthing..”wow..did you see that?she is so clever..thats a very valid question”.hehee proud daddy that he is!

Anyway,after this long discussion,we went to see the midwife..and Babushka loved her instantly.. you know why?She asked her to hold the goodies bag,for the baby.Babushka was mighty impressed.. and held it patiently.SD told her,she can see whats inside once we are in the car.To her credit,she waited patiently,while we went around making various appointments!

And while in the midwife’s office,she asked SD and me,in loud whispers,”Is this the midwife??” atleast 10 times… LOL! The look on her face was surreal.. as if she expected the midwife to be an angel or someone with wings and halos.. and was surprised to see just a normal person!!:D

It was a good visit only disappointment being that we didn’t get to hear the baby’s heartbeat..she didnt even try..saying they try for a heartbeat,with a doppler,only around 20 weeks.Whatever!! Babykins moved just then,as if to tell me-‘Don’t worry Mumma,everythings fine here’ 😀 So,its OK I guess.
