• Doula

    Rise of the Doula: If a doula were a drug, it would be unethical not to use it. – John Kennell, M.D.

    TweetHave you ever used a Doula or postpartum helper? Since recently finishing off my Doula studies I’ve had many woman ask me about the role that Doula’s play in the birth process and how you’d find a GREAT Doula in your area. The easiest thing I could say is to google Doula’s in Cape Town, but would you prefer a googled name or rather word of mouth referrals? If you’re still unsure of what a Doula is, their role and what they offer then you can read this post HERE. In South Africa there has been a rise in demand for the services a Doula can offer. Studies have shown…

  • Starting new traditions: The Night Before Christmas Box

    TweetThe night before Christmas or Christmas eve, whatever you prefer to call it has always been a special one in our family. Growing up my Mom did a movie night, we’d watch Little Woman while wearing our new Christmas PJ’s and eating junk food and chatting about the reason we celebrated Christmas.

The evening is always filled with amazing food, lots of laughter and listening to Hugo tell the kids the Christmas story and also lots of pictures. It’s a special…

I must admit it’s a bit overwhelming to be greeted by Meg knowing what an absolute LEGEND she is (star struck, possibly the Mom equivalent to meeting Beyoncé). But I kept my calm and introduced myself and told her a bit about my blog. Over the years…

  • Help, my kid refuses to sleep!

    Being a Parent comes with its ups and downs, there will be good times and there will be times you regret – any Parent that says no is lying and yet I will still never change it for the world. It’s challenging at the best of times and its fine to agree that kids sometimes suck but I love my little family, the only thing I still need is a damn decent good night’s sleep.

  • Cheers to September

    TweetSo I’ve been fairly quiet lately and not due to losing interest in my little blog but because September has been a crazy busy month for us! We started off with Josh starting a new school, which was the best decision we could ever have made. Yes it’s a lot more money and we’ve had to watch ourselves this month but he has just flourished. I made a comment after his first week of school comparing his current to the previous on Facebook (without mentioning any names) and was bashed by his ex principal – which could have pushed me over the edge and I could have been charged with…
