Well, my name is Claire and I haven’t given birth in ages now, but my memories are still very vivid in places – yay for labour hormones!
I am a fully qualified Childbirth Educator and I have taught antenatal classes the last 10 years. There must have been well over 600 babies born now that have heard my voice when their parents smuggled them into the classes, and I feel very honoured to have been a small part of their lives.
As a new parent I made plenty of mistakes, but I also did a lot of pretty amazing things too. I hope I get the opportunity to help you with your own journeys into parenthood, and in the future you can look back too and think, “Wow, we made it, let’s have another!”
