miscellaneous thoughts on motherhood & birth

Mother and Child by Xi Pan (2008)

Dear readers, as I was falling asleep has a big sister – for three years I’ve tended another blog, called The Beauty Philosopher.  My other blog is a fun affair – a little bit of this, a little bit of that and it is basically about nice things. I have however written a series of more personal pieces for The Beauty Philosopher, most recently about my interpretations of pregnancy, birth and motherhood. I thought they might feel at home here too, so here are the links to a handful of them. I might pop a couple of them on here directly too over the next few weeks.
