Mark Harris is a registered midwife and nurse. He loves being around people, and has for as long as he can remember. Growing up with five sisters and three brothers afforded Mark plenty of practice, and his grown-up family with six children and six grandchildren provides lots of opportunity to indulge his people passion. The choices he has made in his professional life have been shaped by this gregarious inclination. Mark has trained and worked as a Nurse, Midwife, Teacher in Further Education, hypnotherapist, NLP trainer, and outreach youth worker. He still works as a Midwife offering birth education through a program called, Birthing for Blokes. He states that for him, work and play often merge. Mark is the author of "Men, Love and Birth. Together with doula Karen Hall, he produces Sprogcast, a podcast about pregnancy, birth and early parenthood.
