Mumsnet: the April Fools
Here at MNHQ, we've dedicated ourselves to your April 1 enjoyment since 2009. From our merger with Netmums to an Academy course in vajazzling, cast your eye over six years' worth of April Foolery, and give yourself leave to ROFL all over again.
2014: It was announced that the Department of Health would launch a pilot scheme to trial the outsourcing of maternity wards to Mumsnet.
Key features of the new scheme included an expanded range of pain relief options (from gas and air to whale music to a gin bar); a no-quibble, no-returns caesarian option, with online check-in, and 24-hour services ranging from lactation consultants to beauty therapists.
Doesn't sound so bad, does it?
