Trudie Jones is the author of Around the Womb in 280 Days. Born in Scotland, she moved to the United States in 1992, finally settling in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, in 2004, where her love of babies bloomed. Initially trained and certified as a birth doula, Trudie went on to become a certified postpartum doula, HypnoBirthing practitioner, H.U.G. teacher, and infant massage instructor. She has developed numerous workshops including “Welcome Home Baby,” and has written and produced her own instructional infant massage DVD, Trifecta of Infant Massage. Trudie’s goal of creating more awareness and thought for the unborn child was the driving force behind her book, and her most rewarding accomplishment to date.
