Blog Moving............

Article Featuring me on Baby

A former client emailed me today to let me know that Baby had featured her birth story in an article on their site - she kindly passed on my website address ( and talked kindly of my input into the birth of their beautiful daughter!

Im really pleased with the positive publicity for the effect a doula can have, even in a traumatic birth.

17lbs Baby! OUCH!!

This was a few weeks ago now but after posting about such a tiny baby thought I would post this for contrast!!

A Siberian woman who gave birth to her 12th child - doing more than her fair share to stem Russia's population decline - was stunned to find that little Nadia weighed in at a massive 17.1 lb (7.75kg).
Nadia was delivered by caesarean section in the local maternity hospital in the Altai region on September 17, joining eight sisters and three brothers, a local reporter said

WOW!!! Baby born 15 weeks early

Amazing article about a baby born at 25 weeks gestation and fascinating photos!

4D Scan of MY BABY!!!!!!

Now! I have never posted a video before so lets hope this works!

This was the 4D scan I had done today at nearly 29 weeks! Baby is definitely a girl (I saw it in 3D) phew! - the pink nursery can stay!

She hid behind her arm for alot of it but showed us her face in the end - I cant decide if she is either very cute or looks like Gollum.

38 Weeker....

Lovely bump here, baby born 4 weeks later at 42 weeks.

Bump owners comment made me laugh "My bump at 38 weeks - to think I was so proud that "I hadn't got stretch marks"... I just couldn't see them from above :-)"

Beautiful Collection of Breastfeeding Images

This selection of breastfeeding photos are from - the website belonging to a FAB doula in London!

If you have any breastfeeding images they would be gratefully received over at Mammy Doula I'm sure!

A cut of independence

Fascinating shot of a baby just born by c-section, the cord about to be cut - making her truly her own little person.

What a cutie there on the scales!!

40 Week Bump ....

Wearing that bump with pride :) Gorgeous


Fabby bump pic here - I do love to see a fellow stretch marked bump. I always tell my kids that my marks are my "battle scars" I had to gain to get them - worth every one too!

De Ja Bump

This bump really reminds me of my own - right down to the way my piercing has gone!

Now it might be because I'm getting tired but this photo makes me giggle - the fridge in the background jumps out at me - is it full of gherkins and jam or some other craving fodder? Makes me think also that the fridge is full of delights and so is the belly :)
Lovely smooth bump that looks "all baby"

Oi! You in there, when are you coming out!

This photo made me chuckle, if I look menacingly down at the bump - will labour start!!

Lovely neat bump for 40 weeks

Three generations of smiles

I bet baby is smiling inside too :) Grandma looks so proud!

T-6 and looking serene!

This photo was taking 6 days before "due date" and you look so calm, serene and cute!

Twinny Bump

There are two little bundles of joy in that there bump :)

Much respect to multiple mums, I struggle carrying one, cant imagine the heartburn, backache, tiredeness etc with two!

But of course double the joy :)

A very gorgeous baby number 4

Hows this for an impressive bump! Fantastic! Amazing how neat everything else is around the bump !

And yet another blub making, broody inducing image of mum meeting baby for first time - ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Special Moment

This is a really beautiful photo of that very special first feed - magical!

.......and the bump that contained that beauty

This photo makes me really excited for my baby to come out and have that first feed, there is nothing that can compare (forgetting the agony on latching on of course....)

Taking a quick dip!

No, you aren't looking at a page in a catalogue at the swimwear models section! Oh, to look like this in a bikini!

Oh and BTW loving your furniture!

Breastfeeding Beauty!

I just LOVE photos of breastfeeding - so beautiful.

Look at the expression on this little ones face - on one photo locked eyes with his Mother, looking up with such love, devotion and gratitude for the yummy milk and in the other he is looking straight at the camera as if to say "Get me, I'm having my milk!"

Sexy Mama!!

Here is proof that pregnant does NOT mean frumpy!

Work that sexy body!

This shot was taken 5 months pregnant.


If every a more blatant reminder that we are ALL different and no two pregnancies are the same !!

The difference in gestation between these two pictures is just 2 weeks! 32 weeks on the left and 30 on the right!

ALL baby!

There doesnt seem to be an ounce of flab anywhere !!

Tiny bum, big bump!

40 weeks and FANTASTIC bump

This one is a belter (as they say in Newcastle!) Absolutely gorgeous

WOW! What a bump!

Check out this bump pic of Katie Holmes - amazing!

The miracle of birth - amazing photos of a water birth

I feel really moved looking at them as it is quite simply amazing!!!
