My name is Maria Holm. I was born in Copenhagen, Denmark, and as far back as I remember, I have had a passion for babies. It was natural for me to concentrate on this subject after becoming a nurse in 1975 and a health visitor in 1980. In Denmark, this occupation was invented in the 1930s to help minimise the death rate of new-born babies due to inadequate housing and poverty and lack of knowledge.
As I have worked with the families in all these years, I realise that the need for knowledge is still very urgent even though you can browse and look up everything on the internet.
I would like to share my experiences on this subject as well of historical topics, general health, biographies and my personal thoughts about life and travels. After nearly six years on this blog, I tend to concentrate mostly on Art and Travel.
If you would like to find the posts about my life you look at the Header and click on “Posts”, then there are different categories. The ones about my life are under “Family History”.
I have decided not to take part in the Blog Awards.
It’s an honour for me that you read and comment on my posts. I appreciate my fellow bloggers very much for their wisdom and variety.
I have a blog in Danish about my life as a child and a mother linked to this site. Should anybody be interested, there is a Google Translate button.
