Hahahaha!!!! Laughter from me! Love it!!
Three cheers for midwives everywhere! I love my job and even though it’s sometimes chaotic and stressful there is nothing else I would want to be doing. Love being there for the daily miracles!
Hahaha!!! Brilliant!! a great read. 😂👏👏
😂😂😂 love the memes!!
Brilliant article! Very very good. Thankyou, I will be coming back to this one!
100%!! Solo parenting by conscious choice much better than conceiving with a someone don’t love. Anyone who says it’s “selfish” is extremely narrow minded. It is certainly a big responsibility though and I am sure the vast majority of people choosing this option have thought things through a thousand times more than someone having an oopsy daisy.
Loved this article Holly!!! I’m a midwife and I completely get how that moment and how you felt are lasered into your brain forever, the good, the bad and the weird.
Man, what a bunch of nutters!!!! 😳 sorry on behalf of Australia Matthew
LOVE LOVE LOVE THESE!!!!!! 😂😂😂
At my favorite cafe in my large regional town, babyccinos are free (simple milk and cocoa dust) and the barista thanks the mums for bringing their business 😊.... therefore most the mums come to their cafe. There is a big outdoor grassy patch and garden so no one else is bothered by all the happy toddlers playing
Good article in this humble midwife’s opinion! Simple and good advice without being alarmist 👍
Hahaha!!!! Definitely Erin’s!!! The rooms are all gorgeous but hers is actually reality!!!! 💕💕
That’s really tough....well written.... I think if I was a Melburnian, I would feel exactly the same way you do, from beginning to the second lockdown to the blurred line. Virtual hugs to you 😔❤️
Gosh that is so terribly sad. What a beautiful smile she had. Sending strength to her family. ❤️
What a star!! What an amazing moment that was!! Made all the more iconic by the fact she carried BOTH flags which by today’s standards is very normal to see but was very brave at that time. Shows her courage and conviction of her values. Bravo Cathy!!! 💛❤️🖤
Sweet Valley High was the BEST .... and Babysitters Club .... oh the memories!!! 💕💕
@mamamia-user-482898552 do you have a year 12 student then? I hope so, given the amount of commentary
Totally agree. Midwives need empathy really. Doesn’t matter as a midwife whether you’ve had children or not, vaginal births or C sections, breastfed or bottlefed.... care and empathy is the thing. Less pre-conceived notions and attitudes is the advantage of being a midwife without children. It’s like saying only a person who’s had cancer can be a good oncology nurse.
Your description of the cloud was fascinating (as a health professional). What a heart wrenching story, thank you for telling it, gives insight into PND. Glad you’re doing better
