Why doing yoga is great for new mum’s

I’ve just started doing yoga, yeah, me.I’m not very good at the whole exercise lark. In the past I’ve been easily sold on the idea that going to the gym for fee a month would make me super fit but most of the time I’d sign up, then be easily tempted by the pub or…

Things that happen in an induction 

I was induced. I had to be so I didn’t really have a choice in the matter but in a sense I was pleased as I don’t think I could have waited till her due date to pray she come out. I thought they were pretty straightforward but until I knew the facts I didn’t…

The pressure to lose weight after pregnancy is crazy 

3 times in the past 2 weeks a random person has made a comment referring to my tummy. I gave birth a month ago and whilst I’ve always been a slim person, I still put on 4 stone in my pregnancy. After birth I lost 8lbs and within a week I lost just over a…

Looking good goes out the window when you become a mum 

19 days ago I became a mother. 19 days ago I sat in a hospital beaming with pride at the gorgeous little cherub that we brought into the world. We created her and she’s simply divine. That day I didn’t care what I looked like, I mean I had pooped in front of my midwife,…

Hospital bag- what I didn’t need 

I followed every guideline, researched on every website and took every single bit of advice from family and friends of what I needed for my hospital bag. And I didn’t need it all. In the maternity ward, I walked in with Jane (my mother in law) with all my bags and immediately felt embarrassed with…

I was induced, 11 days early…

The final final few days (basically me ranting) 

They say the final few weeks and days drag and by God do they. When you get pregnant, you itch with excitement waiting to tell your loved ones, then there’s this long-ish dance about that can go quickly or last a while, then towards the final few months go up a few notches in speed…

On the boob or off it, how will you be feeding your baby? 

I really want to breastfeed, it’s something that I’ve discussed with Sam from the beginning. I really do want to breastfeed but know that if she doesn’t take to it, that I shouldn’t feel disheartened, that it’s not the end of the world but it’s something that I really would like to do. I have…

Will you glam yourself up for the delivery room?

OK, OK, it sounds mad but there are a few things circulating around my mind about labour day that probably isn’t a concern to most but it’s plaguing my mind. I won’t be wearing make up, because let’s face it, I’ll probably get all sweaty and who likes to see drippy foundation and mascara clogging…

To Pee Or Not To Pee, That Is The Question 

As Shakespeare’s Hamlet said ‘To be or not to be,’ I’ve changed the famous quote that’s been used for so many different scenarios and made it my very own, for every pregnant women’s daily nightmare, the bathroom game. I apologise to all those who’re using a historic quote for something a little vulgar but I…
