Rainbow Baby

Rainbow Baby

“In the real world, a beautiful and bright rainbow follows a storm and gives hope of things getting better.

As I found myself wrapped around my Porcelain God at 12:30am I recalled a conversation I had with my MidWife last week: Me: When will the dry-heaving, nausea and constant feeling of yaking stop? MidWife: It mostly stops…sometimes… for … Continue reading
