Covid-19 and how you can help

As I am sure all of us are aware by now Covid-19 has affected many business both big and small, profit and non-profit. As a small charity, we are heavily reliant on client donations, room rental from private therapists and fundraising events, due to the current pandemic all of these income streams have stopped. Obviously, this is a tough time for everyone, and we continue to provide support online. To help make this possible, we are grateful for your support, however you are able to do that. You can support us by joining Amazon Smile and or Give as You Live and donating when you shop, doing the Eastbourne Local Lottery , or signing up for our next fundraiser "The Empty Pram Push" and raising

Coronavirus (COVID-19) and Fertility

When you are trying to conceive, everything feels uncertain, unpredictable and frustrating. Whether you are trying naturally or going through the process of fertility treatments, life feels very much out of your control. Add to this a global pandemic (which is making everyone feel as though life is out of control) and you will likely be feeling filled with anxiety. You are probably doing and have already done a lot of research as to ways to increase your fertility and chance of conception, and trying to avoid any unnecessary risks to your chance of conceiving. If you are now facing the uncertainty of COVID-19, you have another complete unknown to contend with. This is a new disease with so

Complementary Therapies for Post Natal Depression

If you are suffering with postnatal depression, you are likely feeling very down and unable to shake your feelings of sadness, you may be struggling to enjoy any of the things you used to enjoy. You are probably feeling overwhelmed by having a new baby to look after and may be having difficulty bonding with your baby. You may be low in energy and also struggling to sleep. These symptoms could all build up over time and you may not realise that you are suffering from post natal depression. Therefore you might just think that you are not coping with the day to day things that other people are which may make you feel worse and can make you reluctant to make social contact and reluctant to te

Complementary Therapies after Baby Loss

For anyone that suffers the devastating loss of a baby, you will go through so many emotions and will be desperately searching for answers and reasons. This is an understandable and very normal reaction. People may feel angry at the injustice, be looking for someone or something to blame, they will feel sad, sometimes numb and empty or in denial. These are all reactions of grief and the unfortunate process that you have been left to face. There is no time frame or template for how to deal with your loss, and it can feel impossible watching life continue as normal around you, when for you nothing is as it should be. There is no right or wrong way to cope with your life after losing a baby. S

Complementary Therapies and Pregnancy

It’s important to look after your physical and mental, health and wellbeing during pregnancy, and studies have shown that complementary therapies, such as hypnotherapy, reflexology and massage, can be used alongside the care provided by standard medical care to treat a person’s mind or body, or both, and can have positive benefits during pregnancy. Hypnotherapy uses a naturally occurring, altered state of consciousness, where the client is in a state of heightened inner focus and concentration, to help gain control over unwanted behaviours or to cope better with anxiety. During a hypnotherapy session the client will usually feel calm and relaxed and are more open to suggestions. Hypnotherapy

Complementary Therapies and Fertility

Studies have shown that complementary therapies such as hypnotherapy, reflexology and massage can be helpful for boosting fertility, and many fertility clinics are now offering complementary therapies to help increase the success rates of fertility treatments such as IVF. Hypnotherapy uses a naturally occurring, altered state of consciousness, where the client is in a state of heightened inner focus and concentration, to help gain control over unwanted behaviours or to cope better with anxiety. Hypnotherapy can be used to reprogram the subconscious mind through suggestions, and unwanted, unhelpful behaviours, such as smoking and drinking alcohol, can be changed or removed for positive improv

Mother's Day and Postnatal Depression

We are often led to believe that Mother’s Day is about breakfast in bed, joyful tears over handmade cards and being celebrated for being wonderful mothers. However, if you’re a mum suffering with postnatal depression, you may be dreading this "lovely" day, which is fast approaching. Perhaps, when you think about Mother's Day on Sunday, you want to cry because you don't feel deserving of those handmade cards or the people who made them. If you feel you're doing a terrible job with your child/-ren, you may just want to hide away in bed, rather than being brought breakfast in it, on Sunday. I would suggest trying to change your mindset about Mother's Day and putting a plan in place, of how you

Mother's Day and Baby-loss

As Mothering Sunday is approaching, some of us prepare to shower our mum with cards, flowers, chocolates or maybe a personal gift; some among us will be lucky to receive some or all of this from our own children; others, however, may be dreading Sunday, as it may bring about sadness in regards our late mother, or because it will be an un-necessary reminder of a child that we lost. By saying un-necessary, I only mean that a mother whose child died does not need a reminder; her child will always be at the forefront or at the back of her mind, with or without reminders. I spoke to one bereaved mum about the first Mother's Day without her child (who had died 8 months before, at the age of 15). S

Mother's Day and Fertility

Holidays or special days can be stressful, even in the best of circumstances. Expectations seem to be high and pressure comes from everywhere, to celebrate and have fun... For those among us who are experiencing infertility, however, holidays can add additional emotional stress to an already difficult situation. You certainly can’t make the pain of infertility miraculously disappear, but by planning in advance and acknowledging that holidays may feel difficult and sad, we can prepare ourselves and improve our chances of getting through them. Mother's Day can be a lovely occasion of celebrating important mothers in our world, but could also be a sad reminder if our own mother died and a very

Looking After You (and your feet!)

If you are suffering with postnatal depression, you are likely feeling very down and unable to shake your feelings of sadness, you may be struggling to enjoy any of the things you used to enjoy. You are probably feeling overwhelmed by having a new baby to look after and may be having difficulty bonding with your baby. You may be low in energy and also struggling to sleep.

Feet and Pregnancy

It's National Feet Week, a whole week dedicated to encouraging people to take better care of their feet! Most people will have regular check ups at the dentist or the optician, but have you ever heard anyone telling their friend or their manager at work they have a podiatrist check up this afternoon?! People even ignore a multitude of ailments on their feet, just hoping it will go away and never wondering what it means for their general health. Podiatrists are keen to encourage people not to ignore common foot complaints which can lead to serious issues and pain. Fungal nail infections, corns, heel pain and hard skin can all be routinely treated giving feet a new lease of life. Why do feet s

Amazon Smile

Amazon Smile is very easy to join, and when you make any purchases on amazon they give us 0.5% to our charity which means in the grander scheme of things this could equate to a lot of money, money which could go towards a new computer or some paper for the printers, or even towards our new clinic, so if you would like to help us as a charity out but you do not know how to why not use amazon smile the next time you want to purchase something on amazon.

Endometriosis and Post Natal Depression

Endometriosis is a condition where cells similar to those making up the lining of the uterus are found in other parts of the body, commonly the ovaries or fallopian tubes, but it could also be in other areas. Despite these cells growing in other areas of the body, they still react in the same way as they would in the uterus. Hormones are naturally released in a woman's body, causing the uterine cells to build up each month and form a thick uterine lining for potential pregnancy and then breaking down and bleeding when a pregnancy does not occur. However, whereas the cells in the womb will leave the body as a period, for the cells in other areas of the body, the blood has no way of leaving an
