Birthing Shirt review

When I was pregnant I was given a birthing shirt from The Birthing Shirt Company to review during my pregnancy, labour, birth and breastfeeding. Now Baby Girl is 6 weeks old I think I have road tested it enough and thanks to her being in bed she is giving me time to share my experience! Continue reading

Birth Story – Part 2

Hello again, it is now 6.15pm on the 6th November and our baby has been with us for 12 whole hours. I am very shattered and not overly in the mood for a blog post but I really want to get everything down before I forget it.

So I left off with the Man taking the Boy to the house of the One He Loves and as usual he was a superstar as he went straight to bed in her room, having never spent a night there before so I was pleasantly surprised when the Man was back home within 15 minutes. Continue reading

My Birth Story

Being 24 weeks pregnant with number 2, I have started thinking more about the birth of the Boy. I will be trying for a home birth for the second time in November and I thought I would recap on the Boys birth so I can use the experience of last time to draw out the positives and try to overcome the negatives so this time I can have a successful home birth – but then we all know how these things never quite go according to plan!  Continue reading
