After chatting to a mum this week who is in the thick of some long exhausting nights with her baby's colic, and knowing how overwhelming it can be, I decided to ask the question, and collate the feedback of other parents who have lived this journey, and found some relief for their baby.

I recently had a Mama contacting me asking me if I could massage her at just 6 weeks pregnant. 
 "Of course" I told her. "Massage can be so beneficial for you in pregnancy, and the sooner, the better" I told her.  Of course I knew this mother and her medical history well, so I was aware enough to confidently answer her. 
On ringing around to book her a day spa treatment including massage for Christmas, her husband was told by many places:
"NO. We do not massage until the 2nd trimester."  An...

Last week I announced our first winner of our new "Let's celebrate the Mama's" campaign. Our goal - to recognise how awesome we are. to lift each other up, and also ourselves. Our first week kicked off with a bang and I really struggled choosing between the nominees as each had a powerful story to tell. Truly strong and inspirational women.  Which is amazing. At the same time, please don't feel that you need to have such a story to nominate yourself, or another Mama.

I shared a little of Kylies s...

Lets talk self care for a minute.  YOUR SELF CARE MATTERS! You cannot drink from an empty cup. Neither can your babies, or children, or family or friends. We as Mama's give and give, but there is only so long that we can give the best of ourselves before we become empty. And depleted if we do not put ourselves FIRST. Or at least second.  Our Western culture has some of the highest rates of perinatal depression. And I feel a big part of this is because our self care, and often others caring for US see...

Because my past life (as in before children) was lived as a free wandering chef, and a drop out naturopath student for a short time (such a divide between the two professions), I have a huge belief that food is so important in your life. Both for the soul and body. Food as medicine - for your body as you fill it with the nutrients you need to grow, heal, have energy, and the right headspace. Food for the soul, nourishing you out of pure comfort. It tastes so great. It reminds you of your favourite ch...

Too often we smile and nod while inside we are SCREAMING for help. It's okay to not be okay. It's quite normal. How we handle this, reach out for help, care for ourselves and surround ourselves with support will make all the difference.

From the moment you both found out you were pregnant there has been a building of excitement about meeting your new baby. Half you. Half him. As the months ticked by your excitement grew. Baby arrived and you find yourself around the clock feeding and changing nappies every minute of your waking (and sleeping) day. You may have been completely in love at first sight, or it may have taken you a while to fall in love, but your close proximity to bub, and your genius body's hormones have worked to boost...

The act of mindful meditation can feel incredibly hard to commit to for many?  And for mum's, it can tend to border on feelings of impossible at the beginning. The expectation of time and focus put into long periods of stillness? I personally SUCK at it. But am working on it. Because I know how amazing it is for me. Thousands of years of history have shown it. Science has shown it. Just speaking with people who regularly meditate, you can feel their calm and focus and just know they are functioning a...

Exhaustion! Self doubt! Fears! Tears! A feeling of complete failure! 

Fears something may happen to my babies. Fears that the action I take will scar them for life and they will be broken for their future ever more. Picking them up too much. Letting them cry. At all! Every little decision! Because I got it wrong! Anger! Frustration! Exhaustion!

I JUST NEED HELP!! But I will not ask for it. How can I ask for it? Everyone else is coping. I am a stay at home mum. My ONE...
