Are you getting a thank you gift for the attending midwives?

I'm buying my cheap shower curtains this weekend. Already have a birth/hospital bag ready with mine and baby's things.
I hadn't thought about a gift for the midwives xx

I'm thinking maybe just chocolates or something.
I don't think it is expected or something that people always do - but I just want to do something to say thank you for coming out to me, especially as I didn't know if it was going to be possible.x
