Tracy Hogg cared for babies and their families for over 24 years. She trained at Great Ormond Street Hospital and continued her education in midwifery and caring for newborns at St James' Hospital in Leeds and St Catherine's Hospital, Doncaster. In 1993 she moved to the US, where her uncanny ability to understand and calm babies led to her nickname 'The Baby Whisperer'.
