The fundamental thing about your maternity care is this: the decisions are always up to you. Sometimes you may want to remind yourself of that! Hence these t-shirts, available at https://dalesmidwifery.com/t-shirts/

“You’re not the boss of me!” My little cousin used to say this to my big cousin and it made me laugh. In a midwifery context, I’ve wanted to make these t-shirts for a while. Wear one under your jumper, to remind yourself – or out and obvious, to remind your GP, midwife or doctor! They are £12 plus £2.50 p&p. I am also taking advance orders  for the next print run, mean you can choose your own colour from this page.

Alternatively, you can buy a t-shirt gift certificate, empowering your friends not only with regard to their pregnancy, but also their choice of t-shirt slogan and size! Gift certificate provided by email within 2 days of payment.

Environmental and social justice ethics are pretty fundamental in my view (as a client once said to me, “I want to know my stuff has not been made by tiny hands”) so I’ve chosen local Yorkshire printers Fingerprints, who use an ethical t-shirt supplier to make good quality shirts for us. Download the product sheet on this page for the actual S,M,L and XL measurements.

Any profit from sales will go to making my care accessible to more women. And remember – you don’t have to be pregnant to tell the world “you’re not the boss of me” – I’ll be wearing the first one off the press myself 🙂
