I should probably start with putting my hands up and admitting I have not had a baby! However, I currently spend countless hours on labour wards helping new families comfortably bring babies into the world so hopefully have some wisdom to impart! Originally from Surrey, I now live and work in North London as an anaesthetic and intensive care doctor. My specialist skills, aside from the odd epidural, are plumping pillows and rubbish jokes during C-Sections, as well as getting that all important first family snap in theatre! Having a pretty full on job its been great to have a fantastic pal to share the highs and the lows with, and Charlie has been just that. Together we hope to explain how an anaesthetist can be involved (or not!) in your birth experience and hopefully dispel a few myths along the way!
