Are you at risk of having a prolapse? I am & so could you be. Today we begin a 2 part series on the risks and prevention of vaginal & bladder prolapse. This 1st article reinforces the importance of having an exercise trainer who is knowledgeable in postnatal well-being, such as Wheelie Fit Mums. Read on and see if you fit the bill… http://www.physically-fit.co.uk/prolapse-and-running/

So HOW do you do it?! Sarah Buckley enlightens us on the details 😀 Love to hear from anyone who knows someone who has had a lotus birth, or have done it themselves. What was your experience like?
We are excited to bring you a two part series. Tonight, the story of a mother who has done it. Tomorrow, we’ll look at how to do a Lotus Birth yourself. (NB, there appears to be minimal research on the benefits/negatives of Lotus Birth, but I certainly couldn’t find any evidence for why it’s not a valid option. The most important thing is to have delayed cord clamping, and then Lotus Birth may interest many of you on top of that).
Build a Great Family Team
Great kids need great parents and with the right tools anyone can be a great parent! Whether you are a grandparent, parenting with a partner, a sole parent, a blended or foster family Toolbox has something to offer. If you are looking for practical strategies, inspiration, encouragement and insight then a Toolbox parenting group is for you.
In an informal, relaxed and friendly environment participants are equipped with practical skills and strategies that can be immediately put to use. Over six sessions key parenting principles are explored and participants are encouraged in their parenting.
