Endometriosis affects 1 in 10 women. Tissue similar to endometrial tissue grows outside the womb as well, in places where it’s not meant to be. It responds to female hormones with inflammation and bleeding. It can be very painful and difficult to live with.

"I call endometriosis my ‘invisible pain’. The silent sufferers out there will know exactly what I mean. It doesn’t just affect one area of my life, it affects all areas of my life, and you probably wouldn’t know it."

Are you expecting a baby in 2017? Babies born between January 28, 2017 to February 15, 2018 will be born the Year of the Fire Rooster.

When a Rooster sign is mixed with the Fire Element, you can expect a confident and possibly outspoken child on your hands. Don’t try to control this child, as they are likely to grow to enjoy an independent nature, and prefer to do things their own way. READ MORE ON THE BLOG

"My doctor never even spoke the word “miscarriage”. She certainly never warned me what to expect when expelling “products of conception”. " - GUEST BLOG

"I know I sound ungrateful. But, I’m not. I have a beautiful baby girl that I tried for years to have. I went through miscarriage, multiple surgeries, pain, agony and depression to have to have her. I am infinitely grateful.

I’m just so damn tired, and the whole experience of motherhood has left me feeling like a shadow of my former self. I don’t even recognise myself any more. I look different and I feel different too."

"Others I knew were experiencing #depression too, women I’d met over the previous months. They reached out and told others they weren’t coping, they got support, family and friends rallied around them, some went to hospital for short stays to help them get rest and cope with their illness, to recover for themselves and their families.

No one noticed me falling apart. I’d managed so carefully to hide my illness from everyone, even my husband, my family, our friends. People kept complimenting me on being so well put together! Friends and strangers told me that I was a great mum, so relaxed and had everything figured out. Inside my brain was a voice that screamed “Seriously? Can’t you figure out anything, why can’t you see. I need you to help me!”."

"My husband and I have always tried to be very open and honest with our children, giving them age appropriate explanations and talking candidly about any topic. Mental health is one of them.... We have educated them in their emotions, and their right to feel them and express them in a healthy manner. "

REAL STORY: "I wanted to share my #pregnancy experience because I’d never heard of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura before and I found out I had it when I was 20 weeks #pregnant.

#ITP, sometimes referred to as Gestational thrombocytopenic purpura is a rare autoimmune disorder. Having ITP means that there is a shortage of platelets in your blood because the immune system destroys platelets; and that means that #blood doesn’t clot properly.

If your body is not getting enough #iron, then your #body may not be making enough red blood cells which can cause “iron deficiency #anaemia” and result in you feeling fatigue and not able to carry out your normal routine.

During #pregnancy, anaemia also poses risks to your baby. If can lead to higher chances of preterm labour, or cause your #baby to be born too small. In some cases your doctor may suggest an IRON INFUSION during pregnancy.
