The Ripple Effect – Introductions

So lets introduce ourselves and start to think about who we are …

I’m the Morrow who married a Goodman … we love travelling and cooking.  This Welsh lass (yes I really am from Wales) ventured across the Severn Bridge and eventually circumvented herself to land in Northampton for work where she met her Goodman (Mark) … let’s cut this story short …  our surnames joined together, we have two children later – celebrating 25 years of marriage (2023) and I definitely have a good un … especially when I’m on call and run through Plan A, B, C & have contingency X, Y & Z … he’s patient and absolutely brilliant and made a fantastic second doula when we were having our second.  So a girl and a boy whose births were very, very different and unique.

Ohh the important bits, I’m a birth advocate having been a part of this magical world for over two decades. I am a doula, a pregnancy and postpartum yoga teacher, a baby massage & yoga practitioner, a mummy, an antenatal educator and a positive birth activist (no I don’t go out marching) I’m more subtle than that I support women to find their voice and know their options so that they can journey the birth that happens on the day.

I always like to do the above activity where you create a little A4 of who you are … so why don’t you go grab a sheet of paper and splurge all the juicy bits about you both. Then you’ll have this wonderful reminder of who you both are as individuals and as a couple before this lovely bundle of joy swoops in and takes over … pop it in your baby box. Here’s to the next adventure in your Journey to mother & parent/fatherhood and becoming a family.
