Home Birth Conference 2013

The 2013 Home Birth Conference is on in Dublin soon, I'll definitely be going. It's a must for any prospective parents, anyone looking for a positive birth experience. Even if you know you will have a hospital birth I'd still recommend you go to get some great advice for a positive pregnancy and labour / breastfeeding. Book before tomorrow midnight to get the early bird offer. It's a great family day, children are very welcome, and there will be representatives from breastfeeding support groups too.

 News from our home-front: Charlie's been testing to see if his toys move at night. Today he discovered a Spiderman and Penguin crossed the room and landed on top of a picture at night. He's excited. I'm scared.
