Let’s not pretend I’m excited about this because where’s the bread at Hun?! But at least there is cheese! I’m also not pretending I’m on plan. Just posting odd bits here and there to keep sw in the back of my mind. It’s not a priority at the minute. I’m just not quite feeling it. #wingingit #subwaysalad #tryingtostaymotivated #onthego #nhsmidwife #nhsworker #carlunch

Last year I thought @pampersuk_ire campaign was marketing ploy to have micro influencers and bloggers help advertise their social media. However after seeing the advert again recently I thought 'Why not?'
Midwives are incredible, as are all the nurses, doctors and staff within hospitals in every department. I remember crying when my midwife told me her shift was over 😂 I've never felt so much love and gratitude towards a stranger in my life! I had a very quick and stress free labour and Rachel was a major factor in that; keeping me calm and having a good laugh - I genuinely felt like I'd known her for years! So #ThankYouMidwife we still love you for all your incredible work and support 😍

I don’t like to take pictures of myself but I particularly like this one. Despite the 12hrs night shift, the black circles around my eyes and the fact that I worked when most of you were celebrating...I am smiling. That’s because I love my job so much, I feel honoured every time I have the chance to help women to become mothers. Like me, a lot of colleagues are doing the same, spending the holidays away from their families to look after their patients and make sure everyone is safe. Tonight I’ll be back to work for my 5th night in a row...and I’m happy to do it. Because if I can’t stay with my family, that’s how I like to spend Christmas. 
Merry Christmas everybody 🎄

Having a homebirth was the best decision ive ever made. Being with my boys in my own home at Christmas time. It Felt a bit surreal as it all happened so fast! Our midwife got here 10 minutes before Irah arrived.
I Couldn’t have done it without my delivery midwife Helen who was so lovely and amazing! And my community midwife Emma who has looked after me on both my babies, she’s given me so much love and support for all my decisions. #thankyoumidwife #nhsmidwife #midwife #homebirth #nopainrelief #9lb9oz #mumofboys #boymum #cornishmum #thedayigavebirth #irahxaviah

Birth story time - I am so freaking excited to share this little lady’s birth story! I’ve been waiting for her to be given a name so that I can share in all it’s glory for her. Meet Katie, who’s mum rocked her 2nd home birth, staying calm trusting her body and letting her baby do all the work. welcome to the world baby girl, you were in a hurry to get here and I know you’ll do great things! ⠀
⠀
Link in bio to the full story: ⠀
“I got home and the surges were quite frequent and definitely not going away. I let my husband and midwife know, and I kept breathing through them. I made it up the stairs to get some stuff in case baby did come sharpish (clothes/ nappies, etc). We had everything needed for a homebirth ready. Everything was in place but went unused.”⠀

Well my first proper block of placement is done and I'm celebrating with a bath and some vegan Baileys hot chocolate. I've done 14 days on community placement so far and it's absolutely knacked me. I've been so exhausted and overwhelmed and I'm finally starting to get the hang of it (now that it's over until January haha). I've seen some things that have hurt my heart, and some things that have absolutely warmed me to the core. It's been wonderful so far and I feel so unbelievably proud to say I'm a student midwife. I want to tell everyone on the street and their dog 😂. #midwife #midwifery #studentmidwife #student #nhsmidwife #healthcare #placement #midwifelife #selfcare

After a tiring Monday-the most tiring in donkeys, just leaving clinic yet I’m driving home with the biggest smile on my face. Other drivers must think I’m mad! 
Nope! 
Christmas lights on nearly every street I’m driving down and #heartextraxmas on the radio playing my favourite ever Christmas song #fairytaleofnewyork .

Having qualified as a Midwife since 2006, very little surprises me in the world of maternity care. This week, I was surprised by a mum who is a current smoker. When I asked her about her habit, she replied that 'everyone has a vice' and smoking was her vice. It surprised me at how unconcerned she was, about effects of smoking on herself and her baby. I gave her credit for cutting down to 5-6 cigarettes per day and reducing her carbon monoxide reading since her last appointment.⠀
Cigarette smoking and other pollutants create placental oxidative stress and inflammatory response. When a pregnant mum smokes a cigarette, her oxygen level is reduced and this means even less oxygen is transferred to her baby. Smoking and other toxins affects gene expression, metabolism of fats and glucose, as well as interrupting hormone balance. From conception, fetal development undergoes rapid changes. Organ development is affected by cigarette smoke and other toxins. For mums, smoking increases risk factors for pregnancy complications. How do toxins affect a baby's development?⠀
- reduced fetal growth⠀
- adverse effects on brain development leading to cognitive problems, mood disorder and anxiety in adulthood⠀
- under development of vital organs due to reduced oxygen levels⠀
- oxidative stress in other organs to affect health during adulthood⠀
- increased risk for wheezing, asthma and other respiratory disease in adult life⠀
- increased risk for insulin resistance and blood sugar imbalance illnesses⠀
- impaired kidney function and increased risk for kidney disease in adult life⠀
Doing this research on the effects of smoking has even surprised me. I never realised the extensive impact of smoking on health. ⠀
When you work with me, we look at your lifestyle and areas that supports you to achieve peak health and minimise the impact on your baby. If you would like to find out more, get in touch⠀

You don't have to be perfect and you don't have to feel guilty! Following a healthy diet and lifestyle is not a about perfection. I live in #Winchester and I work at a London hospital as a Midwife. This means that on those shift days, I have to eat what is easily accessible. If you've ever had hospital food, you know it's not the best. Clinic is always busy and I had to get the healthiest option and here it is. BBQ chicken and salad. Lifestyle impacts our fitness and food choices, but you don't have to achieve perfection to be healthy. So what can you do if you have limited time and options?Consistency is key - add a large portion of vegetables or salad to main meals
- choose healthy protein sources such as meat, fish, pulses, beans, nuts, seeds
- minimise intake of processed and fried foods
- minimise processed carbohydrates such as cakes, pastries, chocolate
- eat away from your desk and focus on eating your food mindfully, even if it means your meal break is only for a short period of time
- drink at least 1.5 litres of water per day (difficult when you have a busy clinic and you're giving advise most of the day). Take sips from a cup/bottle/glass throughout the day
- snack of fruit, seeds or nuts instead of coffee, biscuits or chocolate - walk for part of the way to work, take the stairs or take a break away from your desk and mobilise or just stretch
- regularly look away from your computer screen and rest your eyes
- go back to a healthy eating and lifestyle when you are off work
These are just simple tips that you can incorporate into your busy lifestyle, to minimise the impact on your health. What do you do to maintain your health when you are a busy bee?

••TALK•• Day 5 of #pmhphoto2018 
Talking is key to maintaining and improving our mental wellness. By talking we build relationships and find a connection with our fellow humans which is integral to our wellbeing and happiness. Additionally through talking about our feelings, thoughts and problems we can can process and problem solve. Talking therapy can be a vital part of many women's perinatal mental health concerns. However, what can be really difficult is finding the words to tell people that you are struggling and to ask for help. These are some of the hardest words anyone can say. 
I had so much more I wanted to say but I was 2 hours late in work; talking and listening to patients, making sure they were heard. And I just arrived home in time to see this sight 💕 and spend a short but lovely bonfire night with my boys. Now story and bedtime is done it is time for food and to relax and recover. Because once the talking is done we need time to rest. I have put a link in my bio to an old blog post about accessing help and supporting a loved one to do so; take a look if you feel you need to. If not rest well.

Well I have had a week of placement last week. My first ever week! It's been lovely. It wasn't totally what I expected but I really didn't know what to expect as I didn't fully know the role of a community midwife. I've had a chance to practice some things like taking blood pressure and basic things like that. It's been a really positive experience. I'm on community placement for the next 5 months and then I move to hospital placement eeeekkk! I've now got a week off and I'm going to spend it making revision material for my exam in December.

Do you eve wonder what happens during a Nutritional Therapy Consultation? The first consultation is when we get to know each other and where we uncover what your health goals and health concerns are. Like what I say to women when I carry out a booking appointment in antenatal clinic, ' The more we know about you, the better we can care for you.' ⠀
The first appointment is more exploratory and I provide you with simple changes to take the first steps to achieve your health goals. The follow up consultations are where we begin to make a real difference to your health by assessing how you are responding to the initial plan. We then make changes to ensure we maintain focus on your health goals. If you would like to find more information, you can read my page on 'Nutritional Therapy Consultation' on my website, under the Services tab. I provide face to face consultations in my clinic in Winchester, Hampshire. I also provide Skype consultations if your are in London or further afield from Winchester, Hampshire⠀

Did you know that stress affects your hormone levels and your ability to get pregnant? Many years ago when I was a student Midwife, I was working with a Midwife who worked 12 hours night shifts. She already had a child, but since becoming a Midwife she found it difficult to get pregnant. Anyone who works in the NHS knows how stressful it is! Not only is the stress affecting her hormones, but so are the night shifts.⠀
When you work with me we work with the principles of Functional Medicine and this includes looking at how your lifestyle affects your health. We look at how your work/life balance may be creating hormone imbalance to affect your fertility and your ability to get pregnant. If you would like to find out how Nutritional Therapy can help you balance your hormones and increase your ability to get pregnant, get in touch! I offer face to face and Skype consultations. .⠀

°GROWTH SCANS° .
.
. 🤷 Something I had never really heard of before until about 2 and a half weeks ago. A growth scan is usually offered to check how well a baby is growing.
. .
🤰From week 28 your baby is measured by your midwife by measuring your fundal height (the space between the top of baby and your pubic bone). This gives a rough estimate of the size of your baby which is then plotted on a chart amongst average measurements.
.
. 📈 This chart has two bold lines in the centre showing expected average growth for your Baba. If Baba is above or under these bold lines you will most likely be referred for a growth scan.
.
.
. 😟 While this can be a worrying, you need to remember that measuring the fundal height with a tape measure is not very accurate. So a scan is just a way of getting a clearer picture of how Baba is growing.
.
.
. 🙋 The other half and I are heading out to our second growth scan now. Although we were discharged after our first with Baba growing right on track our midwife has sent us back and I've been told we may go under consultant care. I've discussed my worries with my OH and besties and recognised that they are natural. I'm grateful that were getting monitored and I will keep you guys posted. .
.
. 😌 Like anything it's helpful to remember that we have no control over these things and we've got to stay calm and go along for the ride. Still, it will be nice to see Baba again this afternoon. .
.
. ❓ Have you had any growth scans? What were your experiences? .

Botulinum Toxin is a neurotoxin made by a bacteria called Clostridum Botulium. Botulinum Toxin is purified for cosmetic and clinical use. 🔸
Once injected into a muscle it causes temporary immobility of the muscle and creates desired cosmetic effects. With muscle receptors reforming, after a period of time, the muscle begins to contract. This is the “wearing off effect” of the Botulinum Toxin. It is used commonly in non surgical anti-aging treatments. 🔸Common Non -surgical Cosmetic Treatments Botulinum Toxin is used for are: 🔸 Forehead lines
▫️ Frown Lines
🔸 Crows feet lines
▫️Brow lift
🔸Hyperhidrosis(excessive sweating)
▫️Massater (wise set jaw)
🔸 Nasalis (bunny lines)
▫️ Perioral lines (smokers lines) 🔸 Downturned Corners of the mouth
▫️ Dimpled chin 🔸
Generally treatment effects are visible within 2 weeks and can last up to 3-6 months. Many clients feel minimal pain or have little side effects during and after treatments. 🔸 📲 DM for information 📧 aesthetics.byshikha@gmail.com

Saw this on the wall in the Maternity Ward at Royal Surrey Hospital in Guildford. My Beautiful Wife and Beautiful Daughter are coming home today 36 hours after a truly amazing experience. I am so blessed and thankful to all the NHS staff who made it possible. You are true heroes.

A few snippets from Day 2 of @midwives_rcm #rcmconf18 👌🏼 It's great to have the chance to step away from practice and spend time with fellow midwives from across the UK, to reflect on practice and keep learning nuggets of wisdom from colleagues and from the latest research. Living and breathing midwifery for a couple of days to keep being passionate about such a privileged career is key to keeping pace in the modern day NHS 💗 #midwifelife #proudtobeamidwife #nhsmidwife

So I’m sat in the staff room having an incredibly stressful/emotional day, the workload is horrific and I’m just having my breakfast at almost 3pm.

I’m missing Henry like you wouldn’t believe. He started pre school three weeks ago and I’ve been able to take him once 🙁.... once! I guess there’s outcome of this post other than to vent. Why is working and being separated from our babies so hard?

Our son Rivi was born last Sunday 23rd of Sept. After a four hour labour, he came out into the world swimming in a birth pool. We are so grateful to have been able to choose a #naturaldelivery through the amazing #birthcentre at #stmaryshospital and their absolutely beyond incredible midwives. Now time to recover, get to know each other, and enjoy this new stage of life. #nhschoices #nhsmidwife #birthcenter #newbornbaby

Not much to report about uni yet! Real classes don't really start until Friday. I did however pick up my uniform and chat with my placement mentor over the phone. It's all feeling very real and very exciting! Can't believe I'm a student midwife!

Student time! Let the fun begin... not! Time to swot up all in order just to be able to do pre and post natal fitness. 
The fact I’m a qualified/practising/registered midwife and have 12 years in fitness industry (with multiple qualifications including my PT) don’t allow me to work officially with pregnant women joys of #registerofexerciseprofessionals 🙄 
On the plus side be good revision just very out of pocket on a hobby!

What a fab day today talking to student midwives in Teesside about continuity in midwifery and sharing the amazing work of Neighbourhood Midwives and of the caseload team I was lucky enough to be placed with as a student. It only feels like yesterday I was sat in lectures, listening intently to midwives talking to me about continuity and caseloading... so it’s such an honour to be talking alongside the likes of Amanda Burleigh and Sarah Flower ❤️ #continuitymatters #continuityofcarer #neighbourhoodmidwivesuk #independentmidwives #caseloadmidwife #nhsmidwife #midwifery #studentmidwife #continuityproject

Tiny Baby Clothes!!! Too cute!! 🤗🤗 This bag was full of my niece's first baby clothes and my sister gave it to me to donate to the Special Care Baby Unit at the hospital where I work and my niece was born. She was tiny when she was born and not many of her clothes fitted her so they had to buy lots of new ones! Hopefully some other parents whose babies are born smaller than expected or prematurely can use some of these 🎀 Its a lovely thing to do with your unwanted baby clothes and donations are always appreciated 🙏🏽 It's amazing to look at these and remember how tiny she was just 9 weeks ago!! I almost didn't want to let them go 😬😬 @fedbymum you have done a splendid job in growing her to double her birth weight 👊🏽💪🏽 She is definitely one of the most chilled hypno babies in the land!! 😉😍

Midwife life. It can be tough at times, it can be stressful and tiring too. But on the whole it's balanced with getting to meet lots of lovely mum's and their families. Time to revalidate! What makes it all worthwhile is knowing that I've helped mums through this special time in their lives and reading through the cards and letters makes it ever so satisfying 😊

Anyone from my book 📖 club will agree I’m by far the worst member, but I have finally started to read May’s book whilst on our hols... Largely because Hub said I’d love it and he’s right- and it’s a very easy read... I expect I’m one of the last people in Western civilisation to read this and I’m certainly not the first to post about it, but if you haven’t and want a insight into Dr Adam Kay’s life in the NHS, then read #thisisgoingtohurt There are equal measures of laugh out loud 🤣moments and pathos😞.... some of which certainly could have come from my own experiences in the NHS (for 20 years).... for example he talks about the lack of acknowledgment to staff when they’ve done a good job... My heart would sink every time my manager rang, in slightly paranoid fear of what I might have done wrong... also, the huge responsibility coupled with lack of pastoral support, constantly pushing yourself beyond what is reasonable just to meet the workload... I was so worried about lack of staff to cover my clinic, the day after my breast cancer diagnosis, I ran it myself 😬In retrospect, this was a ridiculous decision, but seemed totally plausible at the time.... Like Adam, I’ve kept every thank you card I’ve ever received from a client.... they mean the world to me 😍 Being midwife is not a job, it’s who I am... However, on a lighter note, I just wish I’d been as quick-witted as the nurse in the book, when told by a patient that ‘he pays her salary’, (this also happened to me) .... however she replied with ....’can I have a pay rise, then?’ 😆 Thank you @amateuradam 💪 #lookafterthenhsstaff #nhsmidwife #careforthenhs #loveyourwork #retentionoverrecruitment #midwifelife #midwivesrock #bookclubreads #bookclubfriends

My heart would sink every time my manager rang, in slightly paranoid fear of what I might have done wrong... also, the huge responsibility coupled with lack of pastoral support, constantly pushing yourself beyond what is reasonable just to meet the workload... I was so worried about lack of staff to cover my clinic, the day after my breast cancer diagnosis, I ran it myself 😬In retrospect, this was a ridiculous decision, but seemed totally plausible at the time.... Like Adam, I’ve kept every thank you card I’ve ever received from a client.... they mean the world to me 😍 Being midwife is not a job, it’s who I am... However, on a lighter note, I just wish I’d been as quick-witted as the nurse in the book, when told by a patient that ‘he pays her salary’, (this also happened to me) .... however she replied with ....’can I have a pay rise, then’ 😆 Thank you @amateuradam 💪 #lookafterthenhsstaff #nhsmidwife #careforthenhs #loveyourwork #retentionoverrecruitment #midwifelife #midwivesrock #bookclubreads #bookclubfriends
