Gestational limbo: The waiting game

May 17, 2018

I’m probably having a miscarriage as I type, or maybe I’m not – I’m in gestational limbo and there’s nothing I can do about it except wait and see.   1 in 4 women will experience miscarriage at some point, yet few talk openly about it, even fewer share their experiences while it’s actually happening.…

Well Woman on Local TV!

To raise awareness of National Fertility Awareness Week at the month, I recently took part in my very first TV interview for local network, That’s Norfolk TV (formerly Mustard TV). I’m not going to lie, I was “bricking it” (!) but very pleased with result; and my lovely client, Kerri was brilliant! Best of all,…

Fertility Massage & Painful Periods

For many women, painful periods are the norm every month; this is known as Dysmenorrhea (literally “difficult period”). But believe it or not, pain during menstruation is not normal.   A “normal” period should last 3 – 7 days, be pain-free and bright red from start to finish – I can’t think of a single…

#SimplySay: Spreading the word about Miscarriage

The Miscarriage Association, recently launched their #SimplySay campaign, to help spread the word about miscarriage.   Even at the earliest stages of pregnancy, women and their partners often feel a real connection to their baby, and will grieve for this baby and for the future they had imagined. Feeling supported by friends and family, can make…

Fertility Massage & Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) affects as many as 10% of women (myself included). It is treatable but not curable, and can make getting pregnant difficult, but not impossible. My 2 ½ year old is proof it’s possible to conceive with PCOS, and I’m in good company with many celeb sufferers including Victoria Beckham and Jools…

Fertility Massage & the Tilted Uterus

A lot of my clients and friends have been told by medical practitioners they have a ‘tilted’ or ‘flexed’ uterus, me included. In fact, 80 – 90% of women have some sort of misalignment of the uterus.   If you experience any of the following before or during your period, chances are you have some…

Have your say: Widespread NHS IVF cuts across England

About 50,000 women undergo IVF treatment in the UK every year, with just under half receiving funding from the NHS. This funding is being cut further.   Funding has already been completely cut in South Norfolk, mid-Essex and North-East Essex. NHS funding in Basildon & Brentwood, Bedfordshire, Ipswich, East Suffolk, and West Suffolk could also…
The Cup Effect

Why I ♥ my menstrual cup

  Mooncup, Diva Cup, Ruby Cup, Lunette Cup, there are lots of brands out there, but they all do the same thing, and are quickly becoming a favourite eco alternative to tampons and pads for women and girls of all ages. Essentially, they collect menstrual fluid in a silicon or rubber cup, rather than absorbing…

My Story & the Birth of Well Woman

Like many women, I haven’t always looked after my fertility. I started the pill in my teens without giving it a second thought, and only came off it 15 years later when my husband and I were ready to start a family. All that time, I went without a period, oblivious to what my hormones…
