Taking Some Time Out

Being pregnant certainly takes it’s toll on you.  Even if you are one of the lucky ones that doesn’t experience morning sickness, high blood pressure or one of the many pregnancy related conditions, you are still growing a new life and that can certainly reduce your energy levels and cause a great deal of tiredness not to mention aches and pains.  Hitting 30 weeks is a great feeling knowing you are three quarters of the way through, the end is in sight, although it still feels like a long way off!

This week I have had the cold, my bathroom is currently being renovated so I have no bath and I generally feel yuck so what better than to take a little time out for me to not only boost my mood but to me feel better too.

Llana Kidd Holistic Therapist (https://www.llanakidd.co.uk) specialises in Clinical Reflexology, Massage, Complimentary Therapies, Pre-Conception and Pregnancy Therapies to help improve health and wellbeing.  I was very lucky to have won a competition she was running and received her Mum to Be Package which is an hour long massage and then 30 minutes of reflexology.  I loved it so much I booked myself in for another session this week and it definitely made me feel much better.  Llana spends a great deal of time with you discussing your pregnancy and making sure the session is tailored to your needs.  The massage is extremely relaxing.  It is a full body massage and throughout you are supported by pregnancy pillows and wedges to ensure you and baby are fully supported.  Then there is the reflexology, if you have never had reflexology this is a must.  It’s probably my favourite part.  It is so interesting to hear which parts of the foot correspond to each part of the body.  Afterwards, I came out feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.  I would highly recommend Llana, whether you are pregnant or not.  She is so calming and great at what she does.  I just wish I could go every week!

Newborn Photography


Absolutely fantastic photographer! We had her at our wedding and throughout the whole day Lorelle was amazing! I honestly can't thank you enough for the amazing photos you took! Even managing to get some snaps with our Labrador (who was just a little bit crazy on the day!). Anything we asked you were happy to try and we just couldn't have had anyone better! Thank you again!
