Our weekly rhythm ~ 16 months old

Up until now… I’ve never been a big attender of baby classes, not just because of lockdown and not just because I’m an introvert who prefers my own company - I don’t really believe they’re necessary and Cub benefitted from and enjoyed free movement and play and just being read to endlessly at home with … Continue reading Our weekly rhythm ~ 16 months old

Motherhood, feminism, glass ceilings, work vs home & Jimmy Choos ❤️

When I was younger (like MUUUUCH younger!) I thought I’d go back to work after having a baby at 6 weeks post partum. I guess I thought I’d be a career mum and back in my Jimmy Choos. Christ knows why. Maybe movies? Media? It felt more feminist to teenage me? Who knows. (Still a … Continue reading Motherhood, feminism, glass ceilings, work vs home & Jimmy Choos ❤️

A new notebook? Ramblings ~ Mothering Hurricanes #1

It’s been a long time since I blogged and over the sixteen plus months I’ve had my daughter, I’ve obviously not only struggled to find time to, but turned my obsessive and nerdy attention to different things - quite a departure from the stuff I’d previously have posted about - I.e. parenting and motherhood. I’m … Continue reading A new notebook? Ramblings ~ Mothering Hurricanes #1

A ramble :) to answer « what’s your parenting style? »

I’ve been asked in a few different contexts if my husband and I follow any particular parenting style, so I thought I’d have a little journal-style ramble, practical and theoretical, on our thoughts on this. In a nutshell, the answer is no. Pre pregnancy I always believed in doing what felt right, not picking a … Continue reading A ramble 🙂 to answer « what’s your parenting style? »

My (very positive!) caesarean recovery

Photo by Anna Shvets on Pexels.com It's taken me a while to get to writing this because 1) I didn't want to speak too soon; and 2) newborns are all-consuming! Apologies for the dodgy writing, I'm typing one handed with a sleeping baby on my lap and have no time to edit this post so … Continue reading My (very positive!) caesarean recovery

Our birth story ❤️

Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com I always felt like birth was a really private, personal thing between mum, dad and baby but birth stories helped me so much during pregnancy I found that I couldn't wait to write mine up and share it. I always imagined I'd be posting this immediately, but newborn life is … Continue reading Our birth story ❤️

What’s in baby’s hospital bag?

Photo by Daria Shevtsova on Pexels.com It’s funny how many millions of these posts it feels like I read in early pregnancy, so when I had to pack my hospital bag and baby’s I knew exactly what I wanted to take 🙂 Boy was surprised I packed baby's bag properly and he didn't need to … Continue reading What’s in baby’s hospital bag?

Online antenatal course – The Maternity Collective

I just thought I'd pop on here and do a quick review of a course I found really useful in my prep for getting our beautiful baby born this October, however that ends up happening (!) be it vaginal delivery or out of the sun roof 🙂 This is not sponsored, nor was it gifted … Continue reading Online antenatal course – The Maternity Collective

Preparing for Labour | How to ditch the fear of giving birth | Pregnant in a pandemic

Well hello again everyone! I've been fairly quiet on here which is odd given that you'd think in lockdown I'd have had much more time to blog... but being pregnant in a global pandemic, having started a new job (my first fully qualified lawyer job) remotely and various other things have meant that blogging just … Continue reading Preparing for Labour | How to ditch the fear of giving birth | Pregnant in a pandemic

TTC tools & tips || + my experience getting lucky first time

I have devoured as many blogs, books, vlogs and podcasts on these topics as I could possibly find on my TTC journey (I saw my nutritionist as well to discuss!) and some resources I found useful, some I didn't, some I could relate to and some I totally couldn't. (Spoiler: my nutritionist was brilliant though!) … Continue reading TTC tools & tips || + my experience getting lucky first time
