I don't know. (You're becoming quite the ladida lady, eph. What's next? A psychic nose-powderer?) If she works for herself, I'd say no. If from a clinic, I don't know. Why not ask her?

Ask her?? Are you nuts?! Obviously, you don't know anything about being laa-dee-dah (note the correct spelling)!!

Okay, I tipped her. I also hugged her. She said she would love to stick around during the labour and birth. That's awesome, me thinks.

I like this spelling.

Massages always make me hungry.

Had to look the meaning of that up, and got:

Quote
Ça signifie: être prétentieux, se vanter, se croire meilleur que les autres.


 :shock:  Yee-owch!  It's from an SCTV sketch, where John Candy plays  Luba Goy getting used to the metric system.
