    Guest Blog ~ All about C-Sections

    Today, we are handing our blog over to Debbie from Misfit Mama’s… Hi there! And welcome to today’s blog post all about the “C” word… I personally avoided reading anything about Caesarean sections when pregnant with my first child 6 years ago, as I was convinced I would have a natural birth! (lucky for me that I did) but if I hadn’t, I’d have been clueless as to what was involved. (Perhaps that was my plan!) Importantly this information is really useful for your recovery, which is where I’m coming from here today…

    What if you could choose to have just one midwife to support you through your pregnancy journey? Would you? You’d see the same person at every ante-natal appointment with the option to have those appointments scheduled during the evening or weekends; choose for them to be at a dedicated pregnancy advice centre or even in the comfort of your own home rather than the GP’s surgery or a clinic? Sounds idyllic doesn’t it? And expensive? This was our expectation when we met with Laura and Melanie from One to One recently! But as it turns out, this is just a…

    Guest Blog ~ Daisy Foundation Wirral

    Here’s a question for you: think back to the most recent representations you have seen on TV of childbirth. Were they positive, empowering experiences for the women involved? I’m guessing that’s probably a resounding no!! I can think of a few I’ve seen lately – both fictional dramas and documentaries – and the universal image seems to be a screaming woman laid on her back in a bed. So that’s how you give birth….right?

    With so many lovely little newborn babies to photograph, it’s less often that we have the opportunity to get out with our cameras, so with the recent sunshine coaxing us outside, we arranged to meet up with beautiful Luisa at a local Wirral woodland for a maternity photoshoot. Typically, the day we had chosen for the shoot was a wet and miserable morning with no hint of the recent sunshine that had inspired the shoot. But Luisa was happy to brave the British elements, and the stunning ancient woodland provided a natural shelter filtering the worst of the raindrops away.…
