10 things people don’t tell you about pregnancy

10 things people don’t tell you about pregnancy

When I found out I was pregnant with Autumn in early 2016, I was naturally a combination of excited and worried. After all, it is a life-changing event! It didn’t take me long to realise that there’s an awful lot that people don’t tell you about pregnancy. Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t expect to just sit around being waited on with a radiant glow. I knew that I’d have nausea and my body would grow bigger. Pregnancy is a wonderful and magical thing, but at the same time it can also be very tough! View Post

Hypnobirthing for an anxiety free labour

Hypnobirthing for an anxiety free labour

I spend a lot of time reminiscing over pregnancy and when Autumn was a newborn. Something I meant to write absolutely months ago was about hypnobirth. As a naturally anxious person, hypnobirthing was fantastic for me. Usually, I tend to panic the moment I feel out of control!

Saving the world, one Mooncup at a time

Mooncups are something that I have thought about using several times over the past few years. Several times they’ve been mentioned or I’ve seen them when browsing on the internet. However, I’ve never taken action on it…until now! One of my New Year’s Resolutions this year was to start being more eco-friendly. I’m not doing anything drastic, just making small changes. However, the groundwork for this one started a few months ago! View Post

5 products to help dry hands

It’s the same story for my hands every winter. They get dry, crack, bleed and sting every time I wash them or use hand cream. This has only got worse since becoming a mother! Now, a new survey has shown that dry skin on hands ages them by an average of 9 years. Some hands were even ‘perceived to be 47 years older than their true age’. Meanwhile, healthy hands were ‘perceived to be younger than their actual age 56% of the time’. View Post
