Giving birth was better than an orgasm

A mother of one has revealed how being in labour gave her the most pleasurable orgasm of her life. Sangeeta Freeman says the moments before she gave birth to her son 16 years ago were so pleasurable they were the highlight of her life.

Following a 27-hour labour in which she had sex with her partner halfway through, Sangeeta experienced the sensations ordinarily associated with orgasmic sex shortly before her baby was born.

Now a trained midwife who works with private clients to offer them a bespoke birthing experience, Sangeeta joins us on the sofa to spread the word about making birth as enjoyable as possible.

I was groomed by my teacher

Aged 12, Hayley McGregor developed a crush on her drama teacher, Mr Willson. Two years later, she had been groomed to believe that they were in love and that he would leave his wife for her once she turned 16.

But the father of two was abusing his power over the schoolgirl and now, 20 years later, Hayley has finally spoken out about the ordeal which left her with severe depression and him serving 20 months in jail.

Hayley hopes she can help others by speaking out about her ordeal - refusing to remain a silent victim.

The new Living Wage outrage

After the national living wage rose to £7.20 last month, employees across Britain thought they would get to enjoy an uplift in their basic pay.

However, many companies and some of our biggest employers are claiming they are struggling to maintain profits. To address this they are passing the costs onto their staff, by cracking down on benefits such as free meals, discounts and overtime pay in a bid to claim back their lost profits.

Alice Beer investigates the biggest culprits in the UK, and will be speaking to Mark (not his real name), a whistleblower from B&Q, who says the changes are costing him up to £1,000 a year.

Should workers be entitled to MEternity leave?

Do mothers have an unfair advantage in the workplace? Meghann Foye, an American magazine editor turned novelist seems to think so.

Meghann joins us live from New York to argue that people who don’t have kids should still be entitled to an extended break from work – something she has dubbed meternity leave - just like their co-workers who go on maternity leave.

Voicing her thoughts sparked a storm of criticism and Meghann was forced to cancel a television appearance on Good Morning America, but she’s agreed to talk to us to share her side of the story.
