Breastfeeding Nutrition with Freida’s Pantry
October 7, 2015 0
If you are breastfeeding your newborn, you will have been told numerous times that your diet and nutrition are as important as ever. You burn an additional 500 calories per day when you breastfeed, so it is important to keep your calorie intake up, but with the right foods. As a new mum, you need […]

The Sweep during Pregnancy
August 10, 2015 0
What an expression?! “The Sweep”. It’s not exactly something that most women want to discuss in reference to their cervix and membranes surrounding their babies is it? But there may come a time during the latter stages of your pregnancy, where your midwife or obstetrician may suggest that you have the sweep, to help encourage […]

Extra Fluid in Pregnancy – Polyhydramnios
August 8, 2015 0
In the third trimester of my pregnancy, our midwife had a suspicion that baby was breech, which led to us keeping an eye on bubba more closely and scheduling a scan at around 37 weeks to see if it had managed to get itself into the right position (ie head down). During this scan, we […]

At last! I can say those words, a la Baby from Dirty Dancing…”I carried a Watermelon”. I don’t think I’ll be gyrating on the dance floor with a Patrick Swayze-type any day soon though, as I feel massive!

Gro Egg – Review
July 29, 2015 0
Something that many parents kept telling us to buy when we’d discuss essentials for our new baby, was a room thermometer. With the horrible subject of SIDS (cot death) on peoples’ minds and ensuring that baby is always at the optimum temperature, it definitely seemed like an essential purchase. So I spent much of my […]

A wee Cabbage
July 28, 2015 2
During weeks 29 to 35 of pregnancy, your little baby is roughly the size of a cabbage (give or take). And you’ll likely notice another growth spurt as your baby puts on layers of fat and gets a tad chunkier. Lots went on for me during weeks 29 to 35 of my pregnancy, including having […]

Antenatal Appointments – Third Trimester
July 28, 2015 0
Once you reach the third trimester, you’ll have more frequent antenatal appointments (particularly if it’s your first pregnancy), to monitor your bump’s growth and listen in to your baby’s heartbeat. These appointments may be with your midwife (like mine) or your obstetrician, depending on the care you’ve been receiving and whether your pregnancy is deemed […]
