If your baby is lying in the breech position (presenting bottom-first not head-first), late in pregnancy, you need information that is quick to access, easy to understand and unbiased. You’ll find easy to read and understand information in this book by Fiona McArthur with some quotes from mums who’ve been in this situation too.
Kim Lock is a writer, a feminist, a mother, a breastfeeding advocate and published author. Kim's debut novel Peace, Love and Khaki Socks was released in 2013 to rave reviews and she launched her blog due to popular demand. Kim is a natural story teller, in this story she bares her soul (but nor her actual breast) to highlight some of the issues that are often misunderstood and even ignored in motherhood.
