Meditation and Pregnancy...

Today's Guest Post explores the idea of Meditation as a way of reducing levels of stress and anxiety during pregnancy. So grab a cuppa, take a deep breath and clear your mind whilst you discover how taking just a few moments out of your day to meditate can turn you into one calm and collected mummy-to-be...!


Pregnancy and Meditation

The image I’ve always held of pregnancy, na├»ve as I am, is one of unique loveliness and connection to Mother Nature. For some reason I thought it be very akin to a Spring Vogue photoshoot, where women spend their days padding about barefoot on immaculate lawns, glowing beautifully from within and showing off a very flattering bump. As soon as the first of my friends started getting pregnant however, I realised that Mother Nature laughs in the face of my expectations. “You’d be bloody lucky”, is her attitude.

Storage Solutions...with The Basket Company



Preparing for baby has involved a whole lot of sorting through just about everything we’ve ever owned, hoarded or stuff we didn’t even know we were keeping. As the pre-baby jitters start kicking in, I'm anxious to finish the little one's nursery. But there are still a few final things to sort through before Project Nursery can finally get underway.

Which? Birth Choice...


There’s nothing more real about pregnancy than when you start thinking about your birth plan. The actual birth. The real, physical part where this new little life is actually brought into the world. The  bit when you basically have to pass a watermelon through your vagina. Eek doesn’t quite cover it. But there’s no escaping that one way or another this tiny human is coming out, and even if I refuse to acknowledge the actual pain side of giving birth, I need to have some sort of plan or idea in mind as to how I’d like to initially bring this life into the world. Apparently sneezing and it just pops out isn’t a realistic option…as much as I wish it was!

If Men Were To Have Babies...Sky Arts "Birthday" Review


Since we discovered that we were expecting our first baby, there have been numerous occasions when I've wondered what it would be like if the Hubster were to be in my position. It's usually on those days when the oh-so-unattractive sides to pregnancy have gotten the better of me and I wish he'd just get it. Everything from the torturous back pain, the hormonal outbursts and the rapid body changes. If only he'd just step into my shoes (well flip flops, my shoes are starting to shrink) for just a moment and realise how bloody absorbing and life changing this experience really is for us women.

Maternity Style...With Happy Mum London


Aside from my life saving maternity leggings and few extra long vest tops, I've pretty much been winging it in the wardrobe department so far throughout my pregnancy. I was feeling a little smug knowing that summer was around the corner, and that soon enough I could simply fall into those faithful maxi dresses until the baby decided to arrive. How deluded was I...? It was as if I hit week 25 of pregnancy and bam! Not only did my tops decide to shrink four inches, but even my knickers decided that they would have a laugh by all of a sudden cutting off circulation in the most unpleasant of places. Just great.
