How to write your birth story

How to write your birth story

When it comes to putting life changing events, like giving birth, down on paper sometimes the enormity of the process can feel overwhelming.

'Should I include all the messy details?' 

'Should I tell my child I feared for my life?'

'How do I explain any birth injuries?'

'Should I include anything negative? They're only kids!'

DIY Koala Theme Birthday Party 🐨

DIY Koala Theme Birthday Party 🐨

by Polly McCourt of Sage Cosmetic Coaching

My toddler, Alfie, is absolutely obsessed with Koalas. Whenever he sees them pictured in a book, he gushes and kisses the page. So come Alfie’s 3rd Birthday, throwing him a Koala themed party seemed a no brainer. I don’t profess to be in any way a fancy party planner, but I did create a special day that he loved. If you’ve got a koala lover like mine on your hands, I hope these ideas help you out.

DIY Pregnancy Photoshoot

Are you pregnant? I've been dreamily looking at a whole lot of amazing pregnancy photos on Instagram and Pinterest but I'm too shy to get a photographer involved (not to mention the cost!). So I've pulled together a bunch of amazing maternity photoshoot ideas you can do at home! The best thing is, you can get your hubby involved or your mum or a friend and have some fun. Most of these can be done in the comfort of your own home so you can play around with timing (and take advantage of nap time if you have other children).
