Gifts for Hospital Staff

I've heard that some women/families give gifts to the hospital staff who assist them while they are in the hospital for their maternity stay.

Is anyone planning on doing this?

I'm considering giving something as a token of our thanks, but unsure WHAT to give. If anything, I think I would give bars of natural soap that I purchased in the Happy Hausfrau coop. (I love Happy Hausfrau products!!! And I've already given a small bag of Happy Hausfrau products to my midwife who left the practice last month.)

During my maternity stay last year, the hospital nursing staff & the lactation consultant were PHENOMENAL!

I'd like to hear other mamas thoughts on this subject.

Re: Gifts for Hospital Staff

I did this. I made some homemade reversible headbands because I noticed that L&D nurses often had their hair pulled back. I made one batch for the L&D nurses, and a separate batch for the maternity ward staff. I also threw some granola bars in the basket so they would have healthy snacks. I'm not a high maintenance patient, but let me tell you, I had LOTS of extra attention! They were very appreciative. I'm sure these gals see their fair share of moody (in labor pain and crazy post partum hormones) women, so I felt they deserved it.

DDC, I just had to say that after my c section with my third, my MIL made cookies and mailed them to the nurses. They were so appreciative and sweet about it, especially because she included a really gushy note.
