Looking for some Wall Sayings

  1. I'm looking for some good ideas!!!

    My hospital is remodeling the labor and delivery unit and we'd like to find a saying to put above the door as you enter. I plan to cut it out with vinyl using my cricut. We'd also like to find some nursery sayings.

    One bumper sticker that I've seen and liked:
    "Midwives help people out"

    Perhaps your unit could modify 'midwives' to whatever nouns you find most appropriate. Just a thought...

    ETA - I could see this being sticky for IUFDs and such....so might not work.

    I work med/surg not L&D but we had a patient send us a metal sign that says "All things are possible" It is above the break room at work and I think in general it is a nice saying to have.

    Here are some of my favorites:

    Ten tiny little fingers that always want to play,
    That never stop exploring the wonder of today.
    Ten tiny little fingers that from the very start,
    Will reach out for tomorrow yet always hold your heart.

    A mother's joy begins when a new life is stirring inside...when a tiny heartbeart is heard for the first time, and a playful kick reminds her that she is never alone. ~ Anonymous

    As for your entrance there is...

    Woman is the artist of the imagination,
    and the child in the womb is the canvas
    whereon she paints her pictures.

    Childbirth is more admirable than conquest,
    more amazing than self-defense,
    and as courageous as either one.

    Being a nurse & having a OB/GYN as a husband, and having 4 kids myself, I would say, "You just think you want it out" and going into the OB OR for c-sections, you can have something like "Where's your doula now?"

    There's always, the ever encouraging 'Millions of women do this everyday' which was actuallly said to me by a nurse during labor with my first.

    'Let's make like a baby and head out'
    'Best inventions ever-Epidurals, Chocolate, Earrplugs, & Great Nurses!'
    'Just remember-this child will be taking care of you one day & you know what they say about payback!'
    'Insane Asylum / Maternity'

    Everything is so serious at that moment, they need to laugh.
