Pilates. It’s safe to say, I’m converted! Look, I know I’m extremely late to this party, but to be honest, I kinda lumped Pilates in with yoga and thought that because it wasn’t high intensity that it wasn’t a great work out. Which is stupid really, I actually had no idea what was involved. I’m … Continue reading Pilates for postnatal strength and fitness
I don't know about you, but I love hearing the stories behind people's names and the reasons they chose certain names for their kids. For instance, my dad read the book "Heidi" when he was a little boy and always knew he'd name his daughter Heidi after the character that he loved. Granted he had … Continue reading What’s in a name?

So from 37 weeks when I’m “full term” this baby is more than welcome to make his appearance (my pelvis and digestive system would be ever so grateful). So … Continue reading Hospital Bag – The List
The topic of breastfeeding can be touchy. It can be so easy to be judgmental of another person’s choices/experiences, but you can’t ever really know what it was like for that one mum and baby. So this is just a post about our experience with breastfeeding for the first time. I support everyone’s right to … Continue reading Breastfeeding
I had planned to write down Milla’s birth story from right after she was born, but it was such a hard time with an unsettled baby who didn’t like feeding or sleeping, that the idea just got pushed to the back of my mind (also I’m a procrastinator). It’s already pretty hazy in my memory … Continue reading Milla’s birth story
When I was pregnant with Milla, I used to pore over all the pregnancy and newborn must-haves posts and lists that I would find online. I needed to know all of the things!
