The Perfect Baby Number.

What is the perfect baby number? It turns out I’m not sure, and that is coming from someone who thought they had it all figured out. I was never a baby person, as a child I never played with dolls, and as a teenager I would have told you that I was never having children – […] Read more…

7 Things I Wish I Had Known Before Having A Baby

If someone had told me the truth would I have believed them? Probably not. The truth is a bit out there after all! I was recently talking to a friend who doesn’t have children, she was asking a lot of questions and clearly had a few ideas of her own on motherhood. Maybe she’s considering it, […] Read more…

I don’t just love Winter for […] Read more…

I could quite easily go crazy and B. my family really knows how to argue […] Read more…

Babyloss Awareness Week 2014

I am of course very supportive of and grateful for initiatives, such as Babyloss Awareness Week 2014. I want people to talk about the causes of Stillbirth (along with other pre and ante natal causes of babyloss).
