My thoughts on child birth
I was on the phone to Courtney the other night and we were laughing about how people can have such different attitudes towards child birth. There is a world of difference between the hippie town of Byron Bay and inner city Paris! Here is my theory: for me birth is a bit like a long-haul ...

The Italian way
I've had two babies. One born in London, and my second born in Milan. I found the whole experience of childbirth to be much different here in Italy compared to northern Europe (and probably the U.S).
