The green lady wore a green trench coat and hat and wore sensible shoes and carried a briefcase, aye they were around even after I moved to Garthamlock but think the green had gone and they wore navy.. Everyone was scared of them.. they could drop in when they wanted, pity with all the child abuse there still not around..

After spending almost a year in Law hospital my mother had the green lady come visit her for some time. She used to give her shots. So I think these ladies had many duties to perform.Not just new babies.

Me to Melody thought it wis magic getting a baby out of her bag ,as for natural shock on giving birth to my first child passed, I was slightly more prepared for the next five babies but would have loved tae have had them out of her bag biggrin.gif

The Green Lady wis wan o the scary stories ma Ma used tae tell us when we were young. It ended up wi the storyteller peerin through the letter box o a hoose - an there wis the Green Lady dancin in a bath o blood! biggrin.gif Another favourite wis "Gie me back ma linen sheet, ah'm cauld, ah'm cauld, ah'm cauld!".
