Blessing the way for our new arrival…

It saddens me that women preparing for motherhood generally feel quite alone, unsupported and disempowered. Perhaps the shift away from communities to everyone keeping themselves to themselves and the stresses of life has contributed to this. I remember having a “baby shower” with our first daughter in 2010. It was of course a lovely afternoon,…

Taking back my POWER – The Birth Plan!

Ok, so I realise I’m making myself completely vulnerable by posting up my personal birth plan! I also realise that a lot of people reading it will think I’m a complete Nazi that needs a mental health assessment and you know what…..I’m willing to take the risk of posting this up because my hope is…

THE DISEMPOWERED MOTHER….

In all the years I’ve been health coaching, I’ve been encouraging women that in order to heal they must first tune back into their intuition and take responsibility for themselves by trusting their bodies again. Never has this message been more relevant to me than right now, at 22 weeks pregnant. Never have I been…

Overcoming Anxiety Naturally…

Many people don’t know that for years, mostly when I was struggling with ill health back in 2012, I suffered with anxiety/panic attacks.

And of course, being the research nerd that I am, I instantly jumped on…

The Stress Connection

I’d never thought to consider before that my belief system had become a potent source of internal stress for me. Let me share an example of this…….since 2012 (when my daughter was 18 months old) we’d been trying for another baby. We were told in 2013 we were pretty much “infertile” and had little chance of…

Benefits of Diatomaceous Earth

I get asked often what’s with this weird thing people can’t seem to pronounce called “Diatomaceous Earth” and is it really that useful in gut healing? Here’s my quick answer…. So Diatomaceous Earth is quickly becoming popular amongst health enthusiasts and is known for an impressive list of health benefits without any toxic side effects! Make…

Does Plastic Damage Your Gut?

Three years into my gut healing journey to heal leaky gut and I’d already done a heck of a lot of research already into the causes and triggers for this devastating condition. I was well aware of my exposures to toxic entities and I’d already overhauled a lot in my home, not just diet, but personal…
