First Trimester of Pregnancy? Relax with Essential Oils!

I like to work with my mums before they become pregnant, because then I can give them one of the best pieces of advice I can for their first trimester, and that is relax!

Relaxation is crucial to combat the effects of any stress you may be under as this stress can have an effect on your baby’s developing brain – right from the moment of conception! Many people think that not a lot is going on in there during their first trimester, but there is! Your baby’s brain development is crucial throughout the entire pregnancy and so avoiding anything that can have a damaging effect is crucial; so no alcohol, no smoking, no drugs and as little stress as possible!

My ‘Thin Blue Line’ – First Trimester essential oil blend has been specially formulated to help you combat the effects of stress and help you sleep at night. I recommend using the oil in a diffuser in your bedroom for an hour either before bed or as you drift off to sleep.

Not only will it help you sleep, but it will nurture baby’s first connections in the womb and your first connections with baby. Contact us for more details!

Book of the Week for Babies

Book of the week… The Very Hungry Caterpillar!

My Babyopathy Programme is both sensory and nature based and we like to feature a book each week to help theme our activities!

Reading with babies is important to both stimulate their eye co-ordination and language development. Make stories fun with expressions and tones to encourage baby interaction.

You can develop activities for older babies with fruits to match the story – let them hold them, touch then and tell them the shapes, colours and textures etc – have fun!

Where it all began!

It began 25 years ago!

My life changed when I opened my business, my first children’s nursery 25 years ago. Little did I know that this would become my life’s work and passion and result in me becoming an award winning author, childcare consultant, pregnancy & baby wellness expert and holistic sensory therapist now.

In between all of that, I got married and had two amazing children, got divorced and whilst volunteering in orphanages in Romania, met my now husband! Finally, I also became a grandmother this year, after sharing the whole pregnancy and birth experience through my Babyopathy work with my daughter, beautiful Mia was born.

It has taken me 25 years to get to this point but now after a lifetime of living to work, I intend to now work to live, spreading positivity and sharing my life’s experience!

Join me, a llama loving, family inspired, wife, mum and grandmother as I share my new journey of life, loves and work – the next 25 years!
