Midwifery Proverbs - A Tribute to Ate Susan

"Always believe a mother who says, 'The baby's coming out!'  It is."

"Never feel intimidated or afraid of birth or emergencies. There is a reason people let you deliver babies and it is because you have the training."

"Go and read! You must know what is happening when it happens and what to do. So read and learn."

"Never think you know everything that is going on inside that woman's body because you don't! Only God knows what is really happening. You have to pray."

"A calm, cooperative mother is key in life and death emergencies. You must keep her from panicking and gain her trust."

"We are a team. Even me, I've been a midwife for many years but sometimes there are things my students notice that I don't. We work together to provide the best care for our client."

"If the head can fit then the shoulders can too."

"Input-Output, ok?! You have to watch how much water she drank or had from the IV and how much came out. If you don't, you will end up with a distended bladder and excess bleeding! Input-Output!"

"No matter how new or experienced two midwives are, they can always learn something from each other."

Do you have any midwifery proverbs to share?
