My Real Birth Story – Tamla Verban

Ellyn Shepherd / Bloggity Blog, My Real Birth Story Series / / 0 comments

My name is Tamla and I’m the Mama behind the small business, Bubakin. Essentially my birth stories are what shaped my business! Both my boys were born at home with two midwives and just my husband and I in blissful peaceful surroundings. So I will endeavour to write them both here in short.
