A Little Bit About Me
I am an NMC registered midwife and work part-time for an NHS trust. I qualified as a midwife in 2006 and since then I have held a number of midwifery positions over the years in three different hospitals. I have worked both in and out of London. I have supported many families through pregnancy, labour and the postnatal period and helped them to achieve the birth they wanted. I am also a member of the Royal College of Midwives (RCM).
I became a mother in the summer of 2016, almost 10 years into my midwifery career. It has been a wonderful experience but not without its challenges. I have breastfed on demand and believe in breastfeeding to natural term. I followed baby led weaning, regularly use slings to baby wear and believe in gentle and respectful parenting, I guess you could call me an attachment parent. Therefore you will find no mention here of cry it out methods of sleep training or punishing/shaming children’s behaviour.
As a family, we love to travel and have taken our little bear cub on many trips during his first few years.
A Little Bit About the Blog
I like to write about all the things that are important in my life. You will find articles on pregnancy, labour, birth and parenting and midwifery. I also like to share my recipes for family meals and baby led weaning and stories of our trips and adventures when travelling with a new child.
I am featured as a ‘Favourite Blogger’ on the My Bump to Baby app, which has been designed as a one-stop shop for expectant or new parents.
You can also find me on Social Media
Although I work for an NHS trust and am a member of the Royal College of Midwives, all views on the site are my own opinion.
