Remembering your Lost Baby:

As you may have heard me say many times, recognising that your baby had an impact on you and is not forgotten can be an important part of grief after miscarriage. This is one of the main reasons I have created the Forever Loved Wall. If you haven’t yet seen it, please take a moment to do so. We would be honoured to join with you in honouring the little life you lost. Read More

Eating & Moving my Body as Reward not Punishment

Punishing your body

I’ll be honest with you, I don’t always like what I see in the mirror. You may relate. Both motherhood and ageing have changed my body, it is different.

Fathers Day Lucky Dip

By | Inspiration

Fathers Day is fast approaching. Some of you may be done and dusted, others….still struggling for inspiration.

I am trying something a little different this year for my husband. He is one of those men that really does have all he needs/wants and when he needs/wants something new he will just go and get it. Meaning gift buying can be a little hard.

This year we are creating a Lucky Dip for him, with various items.

Throughout the day at regular intervals the kids will help him pull out a gift to unwrap, creating a day filled with gift giving and reminders of why we love and honour him.

I did a Lucky Dip for my Mothers birthday last year and found it worked really well. My mother enjoyed the excitement of new little discoveries and the kids got SO excited about giving her gifts all day.

Of course to keep this cost effective, the idea is that the gifts are small and fairly inexpensive, and for my husband…fairly practical.

To the Mother who wanted to Breastfeed but Couldn’t

Over the years I have encountered four main types of mothers when it come to feeding. There are some that choose to breastfeed and do so successfully; there are some who would prefer to breastfeed but are okay if it doesn’t work out; there are others who have simply chosen not to breastfeed; and then there are those who desperately wanted to but it just didn’t happen. I wanted to take a moment to speak to this last group of people—the ones that wanted to but couldn’t—because I really feel for you right now. Read More
