Deciding to have a baby after loss…

A local women’s charity/organisation is running a campaign trying to capture the full spectrum of motherhood from deciding to become a mother through to being a Grandparent.

And there I was minding my own business on a Thursday morning, going about my post summer holiday Mumdmin (a massive fuck off pile of washing) and I get a message from my lovely One to One midwife asking me how I am. Not too bad thanks, I tell her. To which she replies that... Continue Reading →

New Midwife Appointment

Hello Lovelies I last blogged about the change over of my maternity care from One to One to the NHS and I was feeling quite positive. The lovely midwife that I saw said that a home birth was ok, that I could have my appointments at home and she made me feel very at ease... Continue Reading →
