Maternal Mental Health Week

For some reason, this week has touched a bit of a nerve with me. For someone who has never struggled with their mental health, this year has tested me in more ways than I thought possible. More than one in ten women develop mental illness during pregnancy and soon after giving birth.   Jaspers unexpected hospital trip towards the end of January (late-diagnosed Hirschsprung Disease, more on that another day) was just the start of a crazy emotional roller-coaster that I really struggled to get through. Jasper’s diagnosis was a surprise. He had a bit of tummy cramp in the...

Baby Number Two

Baby Number Two

The best kept accidental secret - we are expecting baby number two this coming Spring. Just like the royals (Harry & Meghan) we are expecting our baby in April time and couldn't be more excited. Chances of them arriving at the same time? We shall see.  We didn't actually get around to telling all our friends for such a long time, it became more and more obvious when I would arrive to the pub looking like I was carrying more than a big lunch. So, just before Christmas, I went with the big ol' social media announcement days before hitting the third trimester. ...

Introducing... Tell Kiddo

Tell Kiddo is a wonderful independent label who make storing our little one's ghastly plastic toys and piles of washing a treat. With their smile-inducing monochrome illustrations  on paper and fabric bags, we are thrilled to be included as one of their UK stockists.  Tell Kiddo is a family run business, started when Maria was on maternity leave with her first son. It's well-known that babies first start to see in black and white so Maria spent time painting paper bags for her son's room. Thank goodness she did as she answered our storage prayers!  Shop the full range here...

Things that happen during NCT classes:

Childbirth NCT Super Mum Upfront Mama

Things that happen during NCT classes:

Via the hilarious Upfront Mama:  1. You spend your first NCT eyeing all the couples in your group and deciding who you reckon you will and won't end up being with friends with and who you have the most in common with. When you get home, you and your husband discuss this at great length. 2. There's always one Mum to be who is really confident about the whole birth thing and gives loads of advice to the others who are slightly in awe of her. 3. There's another Mum to be who looks like she might faint whenever the...
