Pregnancy can make you feel incredibly vulnerable and I wanted (and want) to give you an unrushed, supported and informed scan experience.
I also wanted to give women access to gynaecological and fertility scans so that they could see us if they were having fertility treatment abroad or even in the UK.
At the first stages, all the participants in Guilford’s original study censored their own thinking by limiting the possible solutions to those within the imaginary square (even those who eventually solved the puzzle).
I started my midwifery degree in 1999 at Northumbia University in Newcastle and ended up staying there for another six years after I qualified with a BSc (Hons) in Midwifery in 2002.
As a rotational midwife I worked at the Royal Victoria Infirmary, moving between the ante-natal, post-natal and labour wards.
So despite not actually delivering babies any more if one decided to make an appearance I am ready!
This also allows me to give you quite a few top tips to make pregnancy easier as well.
I loved wherever I worked and then an advert for ultrasound training within the hospital was circulated and the more I looked into it the more I liked the speciality.
In August 2006, I started my PGc in Obstetric Ultrasound at the University of Teeside, qualifying in 2007 and splitting my time as a midwife and sonographer.Today many people are familiar with this puzzle and its solution.In the 1970s, however, very few were even aware of its existence, even though it had been around for almost a century.If you have tried solving this puzzle, you can confirm that your first attempts usually involve sketching lines inside the imaginary square.The correct solution, however, requires you to draw lines that extend beyond the area defined by the dots.We will never suggest unnecessary scans, in fact we will aim to empower you further to believe in your own abilities of growing your baby beautifully!
