I managed to say no to everything else that was offered as pain relief. The pushing phase lasted over 1 hour. After Ava was born, the placenta was stuck inside my uterus and I bled 3 litres of blood and nearly died during surgery.

Where in the world do you call home?
Norway is home.
I first came across bbhugme before it had launched worldwide, so I had to find somewhere that shipped to Australia and it was expensive! So worth every penny! It supported my belly and it’s now supporting my twins as I breastfeed. Can you share the story of bbhugme?
I work full time as a chiropractor, having studied one year in Sydney and four years in England. I started a business with my husband in 2008 and then decided to do a three year Masters degree and specialise in chiropractic care for pregnant women and children. Together with two other female chiropractors Hilde and Elisabeth, we started a franchise of paediatric clinics in Norway. There are now six clinics called “Bekken og Barn” – which means “pelvis and children” in Norwegian.
“A world of happy bellies and happy babies” is our vision with bbhugme, and because we are hands on, very close and intimate with our target group on a daily basis in our clinics, this product came to us through many years of experience. All three of us specialise in the treatment of babies and children as well as pelvic girdle problems in pregnant women.
