6842Miriam4-LRWelcome to my Advice section! This section will bring you my reassuring advice on all aspects of pregnancy & birth, your new baby, family health and defying age.

I hope that it helps you to gain the confidence to follow your own instincts, whether you are choosing childcare, dealing with a crying infant, planning for a healthy and happy pregnancy, or want to be better informed about a medical decision that affects your life.

NEW! If you are currently pregnant I’ve put together a special series of newsletters to guide you through every stage. In each one I’ll talk through how you’re feeling, show you the progress your baby’s made, and give you lots of advice and reassurance.
