Lots of questions today for Mrs Buxton the midwife. Why do you check the baby? How do you travel to see the baby and mummy? How big are babies when they are born? When do babies grow legs?
Mrs Buxton had lots of equipment with her, stethoscope, weighing scales, measuring tape, blood pressure monitor and a sonicaid (to listen to the baby's heart beat). We were fascinated to see the model of a baby at 20 weeks old and then at full term of 40 weeks and putting balls in order of size gave us some idea of just how much a baby grows!
