I think things will be different this time around. Or at least I hope they will. Does that make me a bad person? Last time I had a new baby, I was 24 and pretty much the only one of my friends who had taken that giant leap into procreation. Realistically, my boyfriend (now husband)… Read More Will things be different second time around?

I woke up this morning to a pretty terrible news article which has shook me a bit. It is all about my local hospital, the one where I am due to have my baby early next year. In roughly 23 short weeks. I will link it here, though I must admit it pains me to… Read More Hypnobirthing and my plan for this birth.
*I wrote this at the end of last year – just after my miscarriage. It’s quite raw and possibly a little graphic.
