The ‘joys’ of feeding children

I’m a nutritionist by profession. In every other waking moment of my life, I’m a mother. And by golly! Some days it’s literally the most difficult aspect of my life. I remember when my daughter (now eight) first said the word ‘mum’. It was in context, as opposed to just babbling something that just sounded like ‘mum’. […]

It’s not the thought that counts, it’s the follow-through.” A friend confided in me recently that she’d seen her GP for help with depression only after my husband died, because she felt she needed to address her health in order to support me the way she wanted to.

Why I have a morning wellness ritual

Years ago, I’d heard of Hashimoto’s but I didn’t really know what it was, what it meant… or that I was living with it. Of course, these days, I’ve built my business around it so I know it’s an insidious and highly complex autoimmune disease that attacks the thyroid gland causing hypothyroidism…or as many women out […]

Post-natal depression

It’s common, it’s treatable and it’s nothing to be ashamed of. One in 10 mums will experience antenatal depression while one in seven will experience postnatal depression. The stats for new fathers are one in 20. That’s a lot. As a parent, and a human being, connections and looking after your health and wellbeing are […]
