The Baby Was Not His

The Baby Was Not His

NPE means Not Parent Expected or Non-Paternity Event. What happens when the father named on the birth certificate is not really the biological father? This is one story out of many.

As many as 1 in 10 births might be incorrectly attributed to the wrong father. That's a lot of surprises and potential heartache.

When a person finds out they have a different parent than they expected it can be shocking and almost universally, they blame their mother. If you are a mother who misattributed your baby's father either on the birth certificate or through what you told your child, I'd love to hear your side of the story.

Birth Story: Gemma Louise Miles

Birth Story: Gemma Louise Miles

Gemma Miles, a popular YouTuber, recently had a baby and posted a VLOG of her labor. In this episode, I comment on how a midwife might do or suggest different things.  This was interesting to me because Gemma is in the UK and some of what she describes in her VLOG is different from how things are done in US hospitals.
