The Northwind is not a wind that young mothers and pregnant women should be walking around in. There are many things that travel in the air when this wind blows that can cause expecting mothers to have miscarriages and young bubs to get very sick. When we go out we always check the wind before leaving the house. If the Northwind is blowing we wait for the wind to change direction. Sometimes it blows dry dust with an eerie, lonely feeling.
