Welcome Wren

I am very passionate about women being informed  and educated about child birth - especially expecting mums! I have recently been blessed with a little girl called Wren and was lucky enough to have a natural 4 hour labour!  I wanted to share with you a list of books that I have found particularly insightful and inspiring throughout my pregnancy. 

Some are purely educational, some come from a wholistic view point and one I warn you now is a little wacky! But together I think they give any mother-to-be a great grounding knowledge that is both practical and inspirational.
