A Mid-Forties Baby Bump

It’s awesome having a baby bump. On my birth certificate it says I’ll be 45 in two weeks. But that is so relative. If you’re 65, then 45 is still young. You’re in the prime of your life. Pregnancy is all about abundance and here I am a pregnant, voluptuous woman in the prime of […]

How to Cure Iron Deficiency

Waking up the morning after my son’s birth and major abdominal surgery, I felt like I’d been in a serious car accident. Everything was in pain and every part of me hurt. But maybe worse than that – and something which could take months to sort out – a blood test showed I had a […]
