In case you're wondering what I'm up to...

I wrote an article along with another nurse midwife about pregnancy loss. It is now on our website so if you care to read it click on the post title - it will take you there directly.On a more positive note, I received a complimentary copy of a fantastic book illustrating the growing baby in pregnancy using 3D ultrasound pictures of babies in utero during the various stages of development during pregnancy. Thanks to Kim of Life in a Shoe blog for recommending me. In exchange for this nice gift from the publisher, I am putting in a plug. This is perfect for teaching children about the developing baby without maternal nudity as is so prevalent in such publications. Here's what Harvard Health Publications (author) says:
