Birth plans

I was talking to another new dad this morning and it’s just obvious to me now that no matter what your birth plan is, you just have no idea what’s going to happen. They wanted to go to the birth centre first to try the ‘natural’ thing, but after a series of freak events – and horrible midwifes! – they ended up more stressed than ever and in the hospital. Shame, as it seemed to ruin their experience and run up to the actual birth. They didn’t feel that anyone was listening to them, mum was upset and stressed and dad felt angry and helpless.
A lot have people have said to me now to stay at home as long as possible and go into the hospital at the last minute. Luckily I still have a LONG 6 and half months to think about it!

Welcome

This blog is a space to talk about living life naturally and healthily.
I am hoping it can be a place for mums who want to use natural skin care on their babies, through to men who want to try organic skin oils.

A place to gain simple and usable advice on natural skin care and using essential oils at home. To make simple remedies for achy muscles all to special advice and help with aromatherapy for pregnancy and birth.
Also a support space for mums to be, new mums, working mums and mums that run their own businesses to find help and support.

I look forward to creating a useful, friendly and creative blog…
