I've got two children, Lloyd (6) and Eleanor (3). Both were born at Whittington Hospital in north London. Eleanor was a caesarian because the little tike went breach at 40weeks and there was a high level of amniotic fluid. With Lloyd I enjoyed using Active Birth techniques for pain relief and for keeping the birth as much within my control as possible.
I loved breastfeeding with both for the first year, but would never pretend it's easy. Before joining ThinkBaby as editor, I worked on the parenting magazine Junior, as acting editor. Before that I was editor at Time Out magazine for five years.
