Birth Doulas. A dying breed?

Birth Doulas. A dying breed? I used to be a Birth Doula. It was a labour of love. I gave all I had to my clients… even at the expense of Christmas day with my children one year. I have supported the most amazing women, with and without their husbands. I have seen the most Continue reading »

Why I really want to hold your baby

Why I really want to hold your baby. I’m quite an expert you know. Four babies of my own, one surrogate baby successfully created and delivered safely for her awaiting parents.
