We’re starting this week in a beautiful corner of the world. On Monday we will be in Cape Town, South Africa with Mama Simona. As a former nanny with some impressive qualifications, she was perfectly equipped to have a smooth-sailing birth experience. Or was she?

On Tuesday, we head to India for another birth story, this time from Fire Crystals! She gives us an eye-opening account of how her hospital treats the birth experience and the new mothers who have just gone through it.

On Wednesday, we will be in Washington with Tara B., who lives far away from the family she grew up with. She tells us about how she took her two-year-old to a place she likes to go when she’s missing her family and needs to find a sense of peace.

On Thursday we’re off to hear from a Lady in France. Although not a French national by birth, she talks about how she has, in many ways, assimilated the culture and the way of living.

On Thursday evening we have an interview from new writer Mrs P Cuyugan in the Philippines!

On Friday, we will be in Illinois with Jill Barth.

On Saturday, check out the Saturday Sidebar with Eva Fannon, where the World Moms give their thoughts on an important topic, and chime in with your answers to the week’s question!
