    Congratulations! Lovely news. I enjoy reading your blog every day and know you will probably get bombarded by information from well-meaning friends and bloggers ..BUT

    Have a look at Birth Skills by Juju Sundin and Sarah Murdoch.

    This book helped make the birth of my two sons an absolutely amazing (and totally non-scary) experience.

    Pleeeaaase check it out, totally fabulous, you’ll love it.
