A T- Rex at The Lexicon

If you had told me I would be going shopping with the husband, a toddler and a baby I would have laughed in your face. What crazy woman would do that? Well I did. We were invited to The Lexicon, in Bracknell to come and experience the dinosaur activities they’ve got on over the summer. Which meant entertainment for them and shopping time for me. I think we may have solved our shopping crisis.

Oops we did it again

It’s taken me exactly 26 weeks to finally put pen to paper or should I say a finger to keyboard and write about the fact we are expecting our second baby.  I actually had to say that out loud just to believe it myself. Falling pregnant with my first Theo I hugely took for granted, and the pregnancy itself I was massively naive about.  For me this whole process from the start has been such an eye opener.  Falling pregnant was the easy part which I feel so grateful that it was. We decided in July to stop being ‘careful’ and on 7th September in a Cumbrian hospital we were delivered the news we were PREGNANT! Continue reading “Oops we did it again”

Hugs before drugs

We recently read an article in Grazia titled ‘Can we please stop telling women how to give birth’.  We were instantly intrigued.  It was written by Maria Lally who talks about the why it took so long for The Royal College of Midwives to end its ‘natural Birth’ campaign and how the pressure of having a ‘natural birth’ has effected not only her but so many women in the UK.  This article touched a nerve with both of us as our labours were not what is considered ‘natural births’, but what is a natural birth?
