I don't think its the whos or the wheres or what was done but it was a honor bestowed on him after many years of service to the Royal Family. I can truly believe that is is a personal honor from the Queen and not one "suggested" by her government.

I do wonder however if when Kate was in labor he did the familiar cheer "push it out, push it out.. waaaaaaaaaaaaay out" Ahhh.. I miss Bill Cosby's routines.

Sir Marcus Setchell wad made KCVO. KCVO means Knights Commander of the Royal Victorian Order.
Membership in the Royal Victorian Order is conferred by the queen without ministerial advice.

Sometimes it feels so good to be right.

There's something about the name "Maria" and the word "nanny" put together in the same sentence that rings bells all over the hills here. Perhaps if Wills and Kate were to have 6 more children..... ahh.. nevermind.

General News and Information for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Family

I'm keeping my eye out for George to be sporting some drapes in the near future. Maybe a little drapery doggie sweater for Lupo :)

I think this is something that has got lost in translation between America and Australia/UK.

In the UK, the majority of births (it was 80% when I was a midwife) are supervised by a midwife and an obstetrician only becomes involved if something happens with the labour.

Midwives also do not just catch babies or simply telephone doctors, they conduct the antenatal and postnatal care and education and monitor the labour to ensure mother and baby are healthy as well as conducting the delivery.

In the UK, obstetricians do not keep mothers calm because they are not there for 90% of the labour even when the mother is a private patient. The midwife monitors the labour and calls the obstetrician when the baby is ready to be delievered. In the UK it is the midwife who, in most cases, ensures the baby is delivered in the safest way for mother and baby.

Roslyn is quite correct. Most women in Kate's position would not see an obstetrician and would receive the specialised care that a midwife is trained to give. Sophie needed the specialised care that an obstetrician is trained to provide.

It's just a cultural difference.

That was such a dramatic story. Edward in Africa, Sophie's traumatic delivery and a very fragile Louise. Thankfully a well-trained team did their jobs and two lives were saved.

For a really educational look at midwives in the UK, there's a wonderful BBC series called "Call the Midwife," based on the memoirs of a midwife working in post-WWII East End London. It shows their roles and responsibilities in all aspects of pregnancy, delivery and post-pregnancy, in which the doctor only plays a part where there is difficulty in birth. I highly recommend both the series and the book upon which it is based.

Call the Midwife also airs on PBS for people in the US. The third season starts March 30.

While OB/GYNs are really the norm here in the U.S. with a birth, with the malpractice premiums they pay I can see more midwives monitoring births in the future.

Here where I live there are a number of women who use midwives and it is becoming more and more common to hear of it. In fact I have a friend who is studying to be certified as a midwife.

Love the PBS series!

They are becoming more popular. One thing I heard from a woman who considered one for her delivery was that they are very strict with their patients. If a woman gains too much weight than recommended or shows any sign of a possible problem pregnancy/delivery then they'll send them on to an ob/gyn.

In the practice i was in for my second child, midwives were mixed in with the obs and it was assumed you would have a midwife and a doctor was "around" if something got crazy.
My midwife was very skilled and terrific at talking me out of pain medication for a 9lb baby
