I'm Verity, a lawyer, birth aficionado and mum of two boys. (So if you want to know some facts about tractors or dinosaurs I'm your girl.)
After a difficult birth with my first baby, I did a hypnobirthing course and had an absolutely magical homebirth with baby number two. Seb was born next to the Christmas tree with no pain relief apart from a birthing pool and a bit of swearing at my husband. And all this was despite me being an absolute cynic and having a hefty 9lb 1 baby. My oldest child slept through the whole thing and woke up to a baby brother.
I consider it an immense privilege to empower women to have the best birth possible for them.
