When I was about 15 weeks pregnant with my fourth daughter, I completed my training to become a HypnoBirthing practitioner. (I may as well make the most of the spotlight while I’ve got your attention… yes I do have spaces available if you’re in the south west of Western Australia and would like to learn […]

The story of my “I did it” moment, after my VBA2C birth. When looking through my Facebook newsfeed, I see so many photos of birthing Mumma’s holding their babies for the first time… a huge smile on the Mum’s face… a triumphant look… a happy look… a look of amazement and happiness and love and excitement […]

(Includes reviews of the carriers I’ve used at the bottom of this post. I’m not an expert by any means… I’m learning as I go, but I thought I’d share my experience). When I was pregnant with my first daughter, I wanted to get a baby carrier. I knew nothing about them, but I knew […]

Since having our fourth child a few months ago, I’m always getting asked what it’s like to have 4 kids. So I thought I’d share my thoughts with you all 🙂 In summary… I love having 4 kids! I find it easier than it sounds… And here’s why… One Child. When I first brought my first baby […]

It’s my daughters 5th birthday tomorrow! This time 5 years ago, I’d been watching Getaway on TV and they had a segment about Petra. I got all grumpy because I’ve always wanted to visit Petra and they were showing it as I was 40 weeks & 3 days pregnant, so I thought it’d be ages […]

Motherhood… A nappy, a bath, a feed, a spew, a smile and a cuddle.

Bub is now 5 weeks old I had plans for today. I was actually kinda organised too! Everyone was dressed and ready… Then I heard a noise from bub. She’s done a nappy. A big one by the sound of it. I go to change her nappy and realise it’s somehow shot out the side/top […]

What does a high body temperature actually do?

My poor little baby bear (my 1 year old daughter) isn’t well and hasn’t been herself this week. She’s normally so happy, energetic and independent, but this week she’s been sort of miserable and has been requesting a few more cuddles than usual. That’s the “professional” way of explaining it anyway. The reality is that […]

Why is my baby crying? Trust your instincts…

When I was pregnant, I found that every second person was commenting on how I would soon have to get used to not getting much sleep. Now, to put it mildly, I had some very uncomfortable pregnancies, so hearing that didn’t really worry me because I wasn’t getting any sleep anyway. But I did go […]

Baby books lied to me…

Baby books, you tricked me! I specifically remember reading that babies started sleeping through the night after a couple of months. Pfffffftttttt!!!!!! I have a 3 year old who STILL wakes up 2-3 times a night. Plus a 5 year old who stays up as late as possible every night, then wakes up as soon […]

Pre-Pregnancy Body Versus Post Pregnancy Body

While holidaying at my in-laws farm this week, I remembered when my hubby and I used to visit out here when we first started going out. He was 20 and I was 17 and I remember standing by myself in the bathroom staring into the mirror and wishing that my tummy was flat instead of […]

Does it traumatise kids if they see labour and birth?

  I talk a bit about my own births when teaching my HypnoBirthing classes, and one thing I sometimes get asked by second/third/fourth time parents when explaining my fourth birth (which was a planned homebirth after 2 previous caesareans), is: “Did the kids mind seeing you in (more…)
