Pictures!!

So, we are back in the UK and have been flung headlong into our third year of Midwifery training. The clinic seems a million years ago and at the same time we are both still mentally there. A very experienced American midwife is now there and doing wonderful things – please read her blog : http://sarahsojourner.blogspot.com/ and send her your love and support!

There are lots of stories still to be told and we will be sharing them with you over the next couple of weeks. For a start though here are some pictures- double click on them for a larger version (all the women in these images agreed to be photographed and for their pictures to be published online):
