All over Germany the midwifery shortage is palpable. The insurance companies and the politicians are not only ignoring the fact but they try and assure you that in their knowledge there are enough midwives out there.
Almost all women I have met who wanted to breastfeed shared the fear of not producing enough milk. This is thankfully more of a myth than reality,
I started to cry. Not just a little, no, I sobbed
What is the German style?
A German baby will always, always wear a baby body, as we call it, a vest as an undershirt.
Once in a while I want to share interviews I did with other midwifes living and working in Germany.
Some I had to buy, some where already there. But all in all things I am very happy that exits
My biggest fear and concern at this moment was
What impact will a Trump led USA have?
Is this a world I want my kids to grow up in? Is this the time to even consider giving birth again
At the minute I end up sending more and more people away and that is to say my classes are filling up fast (still space in January and February), which is nice on one hand but on the other hand I do not like turning people away. And I always try to give advice who else offers English classes but I never, until this day, put together a list of such classes.
Half of this pregnancy is over. Germans call this the "bergfest.
Whoever has experienced acid reflux during pregnancy will hopefully back me up in saying that it is not pleasant at all.
