Another midwife, this morning, regarding a birth we did together a couple days ago:

"I was picking out a scarf to wear today, and I had to think of you. I came in the room, and there you were, in the throes of second stage, wearing a scarf! You had your sterile gloves on, and you're wearing a dress and a scarf, and you looked beautiful. With your scarf and your sterile gloves!"

I usually take my scarf off, if I'm wearing one, as the birth nears. Same as sweaters come off for water births. Things like that tend to get in the way.  I had left the scarf on because I knew the birth wasn't imminent. I didn't end up catching that baby myself, taking instead the role of second. But she needn't have worried. The scarf came off when it was time to suture.
