Being a student midwife I see many vulvas all incredibly glorious, in all their varieties. Many become so self conscious about their vulva (among other things) when in labour but they fail to see not only are they the passage to bring new life into the world they are a fantastic tool to monitor progression of labour. Different signs and signals we look out for can be viewed by simply looking at the vulva which could lead to less intimate examinations. Each vulva tells a story, all unique and all beautiful, and despite what you may think midwives can't remember specifics so don't panic. Vulvas are the passage to life and I can't put into words how powerful I believe them to be.
