Mama Never Told Me books by Emily Van Do

The “Mama Never Told Me” books are based on real comments made to Emily Van Do during her pregnancy and early days of motherhood, with cartoon illustrations by g.f. Newland. You can tell from the image on the cover that these are not books about being a yummy mummy! As a mummy who spends a […]

Widgy Nursing Pillow

I was really kindly given a Widgy Nursing Pillow to review just before Ned was born, now he is with us I have had plenty of time to give it a good run for its money. The first thing I have to say is that the one I have really does have the cutest design. […]

The Original Theraline Maternity and Nursing Pillow

Previous pregnancies and I was quite mean. I didn’t need a pillow, I made do. However this pregnancy has been different, I’m much bigger much more quickly and my body feels achey and creaky. I was offered the chance to review a Theraline Maternity and Nursing Pillow and I jumped at the chance because frankly […]

Isabella Oliver Maternity Clothing

I’ve told you before how much I love Isabella Oliver, I LOVE their clothes. Unfortunately they are generally out of my price-range except when they have their fantastic sales. Isabella Oliver 365 sell classic, good quality clothes with a bit of a twist. They are perfect for work or special occasions. But what Isabella Oliver […]

Bravado Designs Maternity and Nursing Bras

One day I woke up, got dressed and realised that none of my old maternity bras fitted me. None, not a single one having gone up 4 sizes over night in all directions. I thought I might cry. Then I was asked if I wanted to review a bra from Bravado Designs, now, I had […]

Lansinoh Manual Breast Pump

The gel contains something called Flaven, which is made with Red Vine Leaf Extract. This is reported to help maintain healthy leg veins. […]

Theraline Original Maternity and Nursing Pillow

Breastfeeding was uncomfortable to say the least; I was given a lot of bad advice that didn’t take my own welfare into account and one of the things I suffered was back pain from a lack of support. When planning for Mr A’s arrival I knew that if I was to breastfeed successfully I wouldn’t […]

Mama Tea

I love coffee. I need it to wake up in the mornings, revive me mid morning, wash down lunch and relax with in the evenings. Of all the things that we are told to avoid or cut down our intake of during pregnancy, coffee is pretty much the one thing I have failed to be […]

An Interview with Claire Adams, Head of Maternity at Blooming Marvellous

Looking out of the window each morning, not knowing if it will be frosty, snowy or just thoroughly wet and cold, you might feel that spring is a long way off. But, the first signs of spring are starting to appear on the landscape, with the first few snowdrops peeping through the frost and the […]
