Clarissa shares her beautiful birth story...

"My little bub was due on the 15th of May, and like many first pregnancy did not come on that day. Instead on the 18th of May early in the morning I started to go into spontaneous labour. From about midday on the 18th my contractions were regular and I knew that this was it, they weren’t fading and instead getting gradually more painful. That’s when I popped on the tens machine and I used it for the remainder of the day. It really helped with getting me through all the cramping and back aches I was experiencing. That evening...

Natasha shares her birth experience with TENS

When considering my birth preferences, I wanted to have a natural labour without medical intervention, unless medically required. My midwife recommended TENS to me and I must admit I was sceptical at first, wondering if it would be worthwhile. I went on the Natal Care website and read the reviews from other families and decided to give it a go, given the minimal investment required.  The machine arrived promptly with clear instructions and a seamless returns process. The instructions and reviews indicated the earlier the TENS is used, the better. So, when my waters broke, my partner promptly helped me...

Burn Baby Burn - suffering from heartburn during pregnancy?

Aaarrggghh…. that burning sensation in your chest and throat when you’ve eaten the wrong thing during pregnancy. In fact, sometimes it seems everything you eat is giving you heartburn.

High-fat foods – avoid hot chips, pizza, takeaways, pastry, deep-fried foods Spicy foods – avoid curry, chilli, garlic, onions Tomatoes – avoid tomato soup, marinara sauces and fresh tomato Citrus fruit - oranges, mandarins have high acidity levels Mint – peppermint is an acid reflux trigger Chocolate – too much...

Toni (and baby Julia) share their birth story...

I am super happy to share our birth story….. The birth of little Julia went so much better than I could have possibly imagined. Being our first bub we weren't sure what to expect during birth and having heard our fair share of horror stories, I had become pretty nervous in my last weeks of pregnancy. I certainly didn't expect to birth at home and without any medication at all. My first contraction was at about 2:30am, at least the first one to be strong enough to wake me up was. From then, I was having contractions every 40-30mins or so,...
