On Wednesday I took my 2 year old daughter to her first protest march.  We dropped the boys to school and headed in to the city to Strike for Repeal.  I put a few photos up on facebook and someone remarked during the week "I'm really surprised to see you supporting abo...

Breastfeeding is a lot of work.  Wonderful, satisfying, beautiful, enjoyable, awe-inspiring, exhausting work.  Mum is going to be working hard, but there is plenty a supportive partner can do to help and support her and make the journey an exciting and enjoyable family...

I was in a delivery ward recently and a midwife said “oh you teach hypnobirthing that’s fantastic - it doesn’t work for everyone but we (in the delivery ward) can definitely see it helps.  It changes a woman’s mindset.”

 

I’ve been thinking about this ever since, and th...

I’ve had 3 ‘overdue’ and ‘big’ babies.  I’ve been told on each one that I’m ‘measuring over’.  I’ve been sent for a ‘sizing scan’ in the last few weeks of pregnancy.  I’ve had to say ‘no thank you’ to the offer of induction on all 3.  In the end they were all born wit...

Today, May 5th, is International Day of the Midwife which offers us an opportunity to reflect on the value and importance of midwife lead care for pregnancy and birth.
