Connecting Trusted Financial Advisors with Growing Families Throughout the UK

At MyBump2Baby we are keen to change this and we are really excited to be working with trusted financial advisors throughout the UK on a campaign to raise awareness on this important subject in a bid to protect more parents and families should the worst happen.

Imaginative Play Curvy Balance Board

Imaginative play – It became a pirate ship, a den, a boat, the best rocket ship you had ever seen or made into a house for your dolls. I remember tying my mum and dad’s dressing gown tie around my head and me and my next door neighbour would hop on an ironing board and slide down the stairs into a sea of bad guys, ready to show off our ninja skills. They were the best times as a child…. When our day were taken up in imaginative worlds that our parents had no idea existed

So What is this Hypnobirthing All About Then??

so what is hypnobirthing all about then

So What is this Hypnobirthing All About Then?? Now, let’s get down to busting a few myths about hypnobirthing shall we, and explain what its really all about?Firstly, you don’t have to be a hippy, worship the moon, wear sandals, baggy clothes and listen to monks chanting (although what’s wrong with that? Personally I love a good Tibetan singing bowl).  Hypnobirthing, especially combined with Mindfulness can work wonders for preparing women and very importantly partners for childbirth. I want birth partners to also feel confident and view themselves as a well-equipped birthing coach.And I mean ANY birth, not just home birthing. Even if you are having a planned caesarean section the techniques learnt in a workshop will help enormously. Before, during and after childbirth, especially breastfeeding.
