“According to my mother when I was 4, I declared that I wanted to be a midwife. So I put on my nurses dressing-up outfit, wrenched one of my beloved dolls out from under my dress and made the obligatory new born baby crying sound (if only it was so easy).”

Mother to four daughters and midwife to many, Clemmie Hooper has been a practising midwife since 2006 after training at UWE Bristol. She currently works on labour ward at Kings College Hospital London. She is a passionate midwife and successful author of ‘How to Grow a Baby and Push it Out’ and ‘How to Grow a Baby Journal’ published by Vermilion.

Clemmie decided to start her original blog back in 2011 to share the knowledge and wisdom she had learned from being a midwife and being a mother. Her aim was to share stories about pregnancy, birth and mothering young children that aren’t so widely talked about – straight from the midwife’s mouth. Clemmie lives with her four daughters (including twin identical girls) and her husband Simon in Kent and can be found on Instagram @mother_of_daughters and @gasandair
