Ok I know that’s the name of the Cannabeenz cookbook but if the word fits…

I was aware of the benefits of CBD and why I needed to take it but the taste of the oil was the worst thing I have ever tasted! Like the bottom of the sweatiest gym bag that had been festering for a month!

Yes, for me it was that bad! However, I know I’m biased but our Cannabeenz are delicious and the hot chocolate is to die for! Although I’ve had my 5mg bean this morning (that’s enough for me to give up 3 lots of prescription medication!) as I need to sit and write an article for Pregnancy & Parenting Magazine I need a little cognitive boost so a delicious cup of our CBD orange hot chocolate is in order! You have to try our CBD-elicious Cannabeenz!

Juice Plus+ & The Marmite Affect!

Marmite, you either love it or hate it according to their advertising campaigns and it seems that Juice Plus+ gets the same response!

I have to say, after attending the conference this weekend in Brighton I can see why some would say they hate it – some of those that sell the Juice Plus+ products are the a-typical ‘cheerleaders’ with in your face sales tactics and some of the old ‘its a weight loss programme’ and ‘it’s MLM’ stigmas are still lingering. BUT…..

I can also see why people, like me, LOVE IT! The science behind the capsules (and chewables for kids) and the research studies undertaken is extensive and for me, everyone should take it, but especially when you want to have a baby or are pregnant.

You see, they give the nutrients of 30 fruits, vegetables and berries and we could never eat that amount each day no matter how hard we tried! Plus the fruits and veg etc used are organic, where many of those whole foods we consume aren’t and are potentially full of pesticides.

What we eat contributes towards our health and wellbeing, including our immune system and so when my daughter told me she wanted to try for a baby, the first thing I did was to give her Juice Plus+ (and I tell all my clients too!). I of course, also used meditations, energy treatments and crystals but it was important to ensure her body was healthy too!

She didn’t have morning sickness, she had a very healthy pregnancy and I personally believe that a huge factor in that was that she was healthy in mind and body! Her body was receiving all the best nutrients we could give. So I am on the ‘team love‘ for Juice Plus+ and am delighted that there’s even a new little ‘LIFT‘ for me and my busy life!

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!

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!

Routine in the Womb June – Awareness Month

The whole month of June is dedicated to raising awareness for our campaign Routine in the Womb!

We want to empower mums-to-be with the knowledge of understanding their baby’s unique pattern of movements in the womb to be reassured their pregnancy is progressing positively!

We also highlight how stress can have an affect on your baby’s movements and the wellbeing of your pregnancy but also what you can do to alleviate your stress!

Share our social media, tag pregnant friends and family and help us to help women have a positive pregnancy & birth experience!
