Information: - I'm a huge fan of Spinning Babies! I've been on 2 courses to learn their information thoroughly and use their techniques with all of my clients - if you do nothing else, do yourself a favour and check out their Daily Activities. - these techniques were developed by an American doula and have been shown to help baby get into an optimal position late in pregnancy and even in labour - a great site with information on a wide range of topics - a government website with articles covering pregnancy and parenting - an American site that is a great source of unbiased, evidence based information - wonderful blog series from a respected Australian midwife - a great resource for researching the safety of medications in pregnancy. There's a helpline with a live person on the other end. - the home of home birth in Sydney, there are links to support groups, a listing of midwives and more - parenting and lifestyle website for the North Shore - a blog written by my good friend (and midwife!), it's always interesting and entertaining
