EPISODE 24 – MIDWIFE GAIL FROM ‘THE NESTING HUB’
This week I cat with the wonderful Endorsed Midwife Gail Colquhoun from ‘The Nesting Hub’. We chat about ALL things pre-pregnancy, pregnancy and post-partum.
We unpick all of the aspects and benefits of CONTINUED MIDWIFERY care, as well as ALL the burning questions that I have always wanted to ask an amazing midwife as herself!
I have boxed Gail’s information and contact details, and then list ALL of her helpful resources that she mentions in our chat.
I hope you enjoy this episode and gain so much out of her brilliant wisdom and expertise, as well as feel her passion for what she does as much as I did!
