Comfortable Upright Birth (CUB)

I love the animation on this site and coming across a piece of useful gear at a reasonable price.  Also a great resource list for any midwifery student doing a project on birth positions.  I think an inflatable support like this will have limited appeal to many units (over and above birth balls for labour and solid birth stools for birth) but a great thing for homebirths.

Proud to be breastfeeding her toddler.

It isn't often that the Mail comes up with anything that is a) good news or b) worth reading, but this is a great story from yesterday's Mail On Line
For non-UK readers, Theo Walcott is a football/soccer player for Arsenal and England so about as famous in UK Man-World as they come.  A great use of celebrity to promote attachment parenting and long-term breastfeeding, well done Melanie Walcott.
