EXCLUSIVE SUPERMUM LOOKS BACK IN TIME AT THE DRAMATIC CHANGES IN CHILD BIRTH

The living room floor is forever scattered with toys, the washing machine on a never-ending spin cycle and continuous cartoons blare from the telly in the background.

After nearly 30 years of motherhood, Katherine Hales is STILL knee-deep in nappies and mopping runny noses.

Katherine, 47, has given birth in every decade since the '70s - and loves it so much she even works part-time as a midwife.

The mum of a magnificent seven - Lindsay, 30, Christopher, 26, Stephen, 24, Jonathan, 23, Ralph, nine, Imogen, six and Hamish, three - told The People:

"I just love kids.

"But for all the benefits of modern technology and medical practices, I think they had it right in the '70s and '80s.

"After my first child, I spent ages with a midwife. She showed me how to breast-feed and bath my child. At night in those days, babies were taken to a nursery to give new mothers a chance to sleep.

"These days, mums are sent home after giving birth with no instruction whatsoever."

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
