M y brother's baby is due this week. There have been some false starts and I'm feeling jumpy every time the phone rings.

He doesn't have time to talk, so I sit down with my sister Charlotte for a not-so-quiet talk about birth, and the end of my pregnancy. I'd thought once I was home, I could start to focus on getting everything ready for your birth, but as it turns out, this period is not to be all about you and me.

You can come now Astrid, I’m ready!
