Babymule: Packing my Hospital Bag

I left it a bit late to pack my hospital bag this time; almost until 37 weeks into this pregnancy! To be honest, I think I’d got swept into a false sense of security thinking that we’d just use all of M’s old things for the new baby. I failed…

Strep B Testing with Strepelle

When I was 36 weeks pregnant, I took a Strepelle test to find out if I was a carrier of Group B Streptococcus (more commonly known as Group B Strep or GBS). I didn’t even realise that Group B Strep was a ‘thing’ until I was sent this home testing…

Afternoon Tea with Tiffany Rose Maternity
