Have you seen that movie Bad Neighbours with Zac Efron? You know that scene where Rose Byrne is crying in agony because she's been breastfeeding and her boobs are full - they show her boobs as these giant, throbbing alien like purple things on the front of her in a comical manner and everyone laughs. … Continue reading An unplanned birth, a newborn, breastfeeding and the 4,127 emotions I’ve felt in the last week.
What to expect when you’re expecting .. an induction at Geelong Hospital.
Wow - my first post, post baby! This article was always intended to be a bit of a walk through on having an induction at Geelong Hospital. Not in a TMI gory manner as many birth stories can be (and I really don't think first time mums need to gorge on those kinds of stories!), … Continue reading What to expect when you’re expecting .. an induction at Geelong Hospital.
The trillions of ‘naturally inducing labour’ methods I have tried and tested, just for you.
As I type, I'm 7 days overdue with an induction booked in for 3 days time. I'm not going to lie, I'm pretty disappointed - How can my cervix be 'closed tight' for business? It's got one job! (Well probably a few, but only one I care about right now and that's simply to open … Continue reading The trillions of ‘naturally inducing labour’ methods I have tried and tested, just for you.

I thought about writing this article a lot over the last few days and have wavered whether to or not. There has been so much written in the media already, and I think most people are fairly up to speed with the facts, and varying opinions of people. But, given that I have just had … Continue reading Whooping Cough Booster Vaccination
Group B streptococcus
Woah, now that I've used all of the big words in the title, I'll try and make this sound a lot easier than it looks. Group B Strep is something you will get tested for at around 37 weeks pregnant. It is a bacteria found in women, and is actually quite common - but if … Continue reading Group B streptococcus

Natural Air Purifiers
I am definitely a little hippie believer of all things fate related. Last week I was given an awesome house plant from the girls at Pop Up Plants and thought it was just fate that they'd chosen it for me since I'd been wanting one for so long but had never got around to it. … Continue reading Natural Air Purifiers
Rock-a-by baby (and let me take a shower)
One of the final things to tick off our must have list before Bean is born was a rocker/bouncer. My friend swears by hers, and her 4 month old is usually laying in it when I go over and say hi. Not only is it comfortable for the baby, but it allows mummas (and dads) to … Continue reading Rock-a-by baby (and let me take a shower)
My baby shower.
Firstly - It's official. Bean owns more things than me. Or at least in the blanket/muslin/singlet division. Completely trumps me. And gosh baby things are made of such nice, soft, plush materials! Over the weekend I had my baby shower at my house. My family did absolutely everything, from baking (I'm still eating cakes now … Continue reading My baby shower.
