Birth Story Of The Week – Lorna and Reggie – Parenting Twins Article

I’m incredibly grateful for my three beautiful babies. All of them with their own unique and diverse birth story. But the tale of my third, and final (it’s absolutely our last) baby is one that I am so proud to tell – and that is something I thought I would never be able to say. Despite believing I was fully prepared for all my births; I really wasn’t equipped to deal with the physical and mental aftermath. So, with two…

Birth Story of the Week – Kym, Jade and Tate – Parenting Twins Article

We planned our son. We always knew that I would carry any babies we had, you know when each partner knows their roles within a marriage? Well that’s us.

Birth Story of the week – Erin and Roman – Parenting Twins Article

Birth Story of the week – Steph and Bea – Parenting Twins Article

I’m a midwife so having a baby was a whole multitude of emotions for me – the worry and panic of everything that can happen but also the capacity to know about the incredible outcomes and the families we see created. On Wednesday 1st November, I went into hospital to be induced. The induction took a while for anything to happen, mostly…

VBAC Water Birth – Sarah and Libby – Parenting Twins Article

I had my first baby in 2013, after 3 days in labour they found that he wasn’t actually head down and his head was stuck in the side of my pelvis, which meant an emergency c-section (something I had not prepared for as I was terrified of it so thought rather naively that I wasn’t going to have a section) Noah was born by emergency section on 9th June 2013, 10 days early but a healthy 6lbs 13oz. When we…
