Chiropractic Care during Pregnancy

  When we consider the changes to a pregnant woman’s body, it is no wonder that up to 80% of mothers can suffer with spinal pain and other associated conditions. Hormones, weight gain and postural changes all put a mother’s spine and nervous system under increased stress.

The birth of Jack – a little insight into my birthing experiences

I recently stumbled across a guest blog post I wrote many moons ago, about the birth of my youngest son. It’s a little crude in the writing, but it’s honest and gives a little insight into why I feel so strongly about being an advocate for birthing women.

When Breastfeeding Just Won’t Work.

We all know ‘breast is best’. After all, it’s what’s nature intended. However breastfeeding does not always come naturally or easily. I believe it’s a learned skill, for both Mum and baby, and one that our generation has largely missed out on being exposed to. Many of us were born in an era where bottlefeeding was encouraged, and sadly there is a misguided idea that breastfeeding should be done in private. Traditionally we’d see breastfeeding Read More …

What to pack for hospital…
