This consciousness has been passed from hand to hand, midwife to midwife, for generations, yet always (in its pure sense) starts with the mother herself. The mother (and baby) is at the center and the midwife is there to care for and support her. The lotus represents this pure maternal knowledge, the water that flows from it is the legacy of midwifery.
The water flows through the midwife's hands, nourishing the trees, encouraging them to bear fruit. These trees represents the practice of midwifery worldwide. Many midwives draw from the knowledge of the earth as well, using herbs (like the red raspberry at the base of the trees) in their practice. I also included the moon, as women (birthing or not) are often influenced and ruled by the moon's cycles.
