How many of us are overdrawn, emotionally, physically, mentally? This is a technique that I first started using when I joined the Fertile Body Method training about 6 years ago!

End Period Poverty. The #endperiodpoverty is very much in the news at present. It is about time. So many people do not even know it is a thing. I didn’t until last year.

Jay KellyBirth, Blog, Pregnancy, Well Woman

What is ‘hypnobirthing’ and will it help? Hypnobirthing has become a massive business in the last few years. I love the positive birth focus, but I don’t much like the hypnobirthing hype. No technique should take credit for a woman’s birthing ability. No one should go into birth believing that they need to do this particular technique in this particular … Read More
