There’s one question every mum hates being asked once they’ve had a baby, which is “are you planning to lose the baby weight?” So, when an NHS campaign claiming mums who chose to breastfeed were ‘yummier mummies’ who got their figure back quicker, people took to Twitter to slam it for its ‘sexism’.
As more horror stories emerge about birth, four ladies give their accounts of pain free, euphoric and ‘better than sex’ labours.
ACTRESS Emma Thompson recently hit out at the “lies” told about the pain of childbirth, saying women are now terrified of giving birth naturally.
The actress – who gave birth to daughter Gaia, now 19, without pain relief – said many women are opting for C-sections because they are so scared.
It’s that time of year again when the ‘freshers’ are bouncing around university excited for their new, independent life. Signing up to societies and getting to know their (in most cases) new city and campus.
But it’s also that time of year where a lot of people are heading into their final year as students and are preparing for the next stage of adulthood, also known as reality where there are no ‘free overdrafts’, weekday drinking and basically, ‘shit’ gets serious.
As a student mum, I can safely say that becoming a mother in my second year at university, definitely prepared me for final year and heres why!
Leo has started to become a little bit of a ‘fussy eater’, so I started googling fun food ideas for toddlers that were also really good for them.
I came across a load of different muffin recipes that were jam packed with veggies and decided I’d make something from his favourite fruit, blueberries!
We hope you love them as much as we do!
Before I became a mum, I would always make bold statements about the type of parent I wanted to be. But one thing I should never have said is “I won’t let my child do that”.
It’s quite easy to make assumptions of the type of parent you will be when you don’t have a child, but once you become a mum or dad you soon realise that ‘perfect parenting’ doesn’t exist.
