    Hello, I’ve just discovered your site/blog and I find it very inspiring. As you’re sensible to the senses, I have an advice for you, if you allow. I’ve had my 2 children in a hospital (in France) where you could have a “natural” birth. That is to say, no epidural, no monitoring, no legs strapped in a chair where every one could have a look at you labouring… My husband and I used the Haptonomy technique in order to be able to go through the pain ( Why am I telling you all this ? With no medicine help, a first baby can take up to 10 hours to arrive. I had received the advice from an old midwife that if you drank sage herbal tea on the last month, it would speed the labour process. So for a month, every evening, I would drink sage herbal tea (I bought it at the local pharmacy). It really helped me with the labour that lasted 2 hours for each baby instead of 10
    Now my 2 babies are young adults…
    For the name choosing, my daughter’s advice is that it is better to choose a name that can be pronounced correctly all over the world. Her name is Marion. In France, you pronounce the A as in black, but in Ireland, where she studied, it was pronounced A as in baby and she hated it…

    Kind regards

    Thank you for the wonderful advice Slyvaine! Also thanks to your daughter, Marion is a beautiful name, especially when pronounced correctly.
