    Congratulations on both counts, Simone . Sounds like it really is a great day for you. You can relax now and get on with your life in NZ. Hope you're not going to desert us now, as you are a great help to the forum.

    Not at all, every morning when I get up and get on my computer there are 5 sites I go on and check, MTNZ is always one of them and I guess it always will be :))

    Just confirming that we are having a wee baby March 2010 :)))))))

    And the whole midwife thing is true!!!
    I got mine sorted yesterday but she said that if you wait until you are 6 weeks pregnant it is impossible to find one as they are all booked out!!!

    Can we have some more midwifes in NZ please??????

    Mine is from the UK and absolutely adorable!!!
