Let Your Partner Take Control for a Better Birth Experience

Let Your Partner Take Control for a Better Birth Experience

  I was chatting to a friend I’ve been working with about her birth preferences for hospital.  She’s a high flying solicitor in the City and so everything she does is SUPER organized. As I was chatting to her, it was clear she was doing something that a lot of my Exec mums-to-be do….Letting the control freak take over!  She talked me through, at length, how she was planning on managing EVERYTHING.  And when I was able to get a word in and  I asked her where – let’s call him…Tom, was going to be whilst she was directing everyone.  I’ve heard her response from so many different women, so many times before….That I had to share this with you. Despite being one of the biggest advocates for  empowered, strong woman having control over the way that they birth.  When it comes to the delivery room, both science and experience tells me that you need to be prepared to let go of the reins when it comes to creating the positive childbirth you want and there is 1 very good reason why….   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VRGZ_ipNqRw   So, please share with me your thoughts with me on this post in the comments box below.  Does this make sense to you, or do you think it's a load of rubbish?!

Fancy Hanging Out With Oprah and Deepak?

Fancy Hanging Out With Oprah and Deepak?

  Everyone wants to hang out with Oprah and Deepak right?  Between them, we have the perfect human being – the ‘Zen Gazzillionaire’ and who doesn’t want a piece of that action?? 🙂 So, just in case you’ve been hiding in the deepest, darkest depths of Outer Mongolia, over the last couple of years and have managed to miss this.  These two wonderful human beings have teamed up and dared us to shut up and listen for 21 whole days straight!  OK, so maybe shut up and listen, isn’t quite the way they would put it, they’d probably say something like…"Get quiet so you can so you can tune into the voice within." More eloquent, yes, but it means the same thing....If you're still unsure as to what I am going on about, I am going to put you out of your misery.  At the start of this week, Oprah and Deepak finally launched the 7th program in their series of 21 Day meditation challenges. These challenges are amazing!  And as you have found yourself chilling in the Limitless You world today, if you are not already on the meditation gravy train, I have no doubt that getting involved with this over the next 21 days, could do you a whole heap of good :-).  If you are the type of person that finds...

Are you Suffering From Superwoman Syndrome?

  Recent research has shown that 80% of mothers returning to work suffer from the guilt of leaving their child or children at home.  What’s interesting to me, is it doesn’t matter whether you’re a stay-at –home mum or returning back to the office; as soon as the subject of guilt comes up, straw polls of peers, colleagues and clients has everyone slowly raising their hands and whispering yes, that’s me! Whether you're feeling guilty because you wish you were doing something, anything other than playing trains and cars for what once again feels like an eternity (even though it’s actually only been about 15 minutes).  Or, you’re the classic working mum who has received the biggest shock of her life, when reality dawns, after returning from maternity leave.  As despite delivering great work, in less time, you can't help but feel the eyes of the office like lasers in your back, as you leave at 5 o’clock on the dot every night. Whether these feelings are warranted or not doesn’t matter, all you know is, that it feels even worse when you get home and are only half focused on your little one, as your attention flits between your mobile and your iPad, wondering what else could be done to...
