Apparently it is a good idea to tip midwives. Who knew? Police in China have confirmed that a woman who had recently given birth had umm, her anus surgically sewn up by her midwife after the woman had given birth. The midwife said she was helping the woman with a bleeding hemorrhoid and that she was doing it out of goodwill and because she is a good person. At first police did not believe the young mother but then had a look for themselves and discovered her anus had been sewn and the bleeding hemorrhoid had not been touched at all.
This all came about because the husband of the new mother only gave the midwife a $15 tip. Apparently she was expecting much more and even told the man that he should give her a big tip before the child was born.
