The other week Nicky, one of our founders shared her story about her hormones and what she was doing to get them back in balance. After a huge response from you all we thought we would ask our nutritionist Catherine Lippe how our diet influences hormones. Over to Catherine…
Our hormones are constantly changing. From week-to-week, day-to-day and hour-to-hour there will be frequent changes in your hormones which will be influenced by a whole host of factors including:
- environmental factors
- menstrual cycle
- other physiological processes taking place in your body
At the Mummy Space we have two amazing massage and fascial release therapists, Paula Kemp and Nicola Reed.
We thought we’d explain a little more about what each of them does, helping you decide which one can help you the most with your aches and pains.
As we head into spring, a time of the year associated with new beginnings and growth, it’s a good time to reflect on our mental load and whether we need to create a greater sense of balance in our lives. So what is the mental load? Well we all have one, irrespective of whether we are male or female.
Tonight Paula Kemp our Pregnancy Massage specialist is blogging for us about massage during pregnancy. As always if you have any questions please do send us a message. Over to Paula…
One of the questions I get asked regularly is how often you should get a massage during pregnancy.
I get asked about constipation in children all the time. Constipation can be the culprit for urinary
incontinence during the day and can also be one of the main reasons for bedwetting at night.
Toileting positions are so key and I know it can be difficult to encourage children to sit properly on
the toilet especially when they want to get back to playing.
The period running up to Christmas was a pretty full on and stressful one. Like most mums I was flat out with buying gifts, wrapping them, keeping my 2 little people going until the end of term, managing family plans, as well as all the normal day to day stuff like washing, feeding tiny and big humans oh and working!! I was shattered!
