The story of our amazing midwife: and it's not what you might think!

Thank you for visiting, however the story that you’re looking for has been removed. Why? Funny you should ask...

After the birth of our son Cosmo, we went back to thank the midwife that assisted us. During our conversation, a casual comment she made led me to one of my most important realizations about the power of recognition. It took me nearly two years to develop the idea and write a post about it, so when we finally posted it to this blog on July 18th, I was pretty excited. The post talked about the transformative power of recognition and how it can help people identify their role. Indeed, being recognized helps people define their role within a community and empowers them to step into that role with more confidence and energy.

What I didn’t realize is that there are issues around confidentiality in midwifery, and so within 2 hours of our posting, we removed it to protect the privacy of those involved.

It’s unfortunate because there were several important insights in this story, however we can’t share it publicly.

If you would like to request a copy of this post “The Story of our Midwife: and it’s not what you might think!”, which has now been updated for confidentiality, please email info@eclipseawards.com to request a copy.

Thank you for your time and understanding.


Indeed, since we humans first started gathering in groups, we have probably stood in circles and recognized one another for our strengths, and in doing so we defined our roles, empowered one another, cultivated experts, and improved our tribe’s collective chance for success.
