**Teacup of the week

**Mother’s little helper Being 14 weeks pregnant with our second child, I have occasionally been feeling faint. A few days ago I had a dizzy spell and, as my husband wasn’t home, I asked oiss Three to fetch me her juice bottle so I could have a drink and feel better. oiss Three complied and once I’d had a few sips, oiss Three gently rubbed my back and said, “oummy, I’m gonna push that baby right out of you!” Could this little lady be a future midwife?

Eventually hubby had to be despatched on a long walk back to the car. Aroha, Palmerston North
