Lazy Daisy Blog
Thoughts and musings from Lazy Daisy and our friends.
Another Daisy Mum Blogs ......
.... not only about her journey in Lazy DaisyÂ® antenatal classes but also about her pregnancy and her hopes for her birth!
Due to the popularity of our pregnancy and birth video diary series with much loved Daisy BirthingÂ® mum Jess, we jumped at the chance of featuring Yorkshire based mum Lucy. Lucy has not only joined us to enjoy Daisy BirthingÂ® classes (during pregnancy number 2) but has also enrolled as an antenatal teacher in training (in order to bring more classes to mums in the Yorkshire area - specifically Halifax)! So this seems the ideal chance to track her journey through pregnancy, birth, motherhood and training!
Lucy introduces herself, her bump and her family situation today, talks honestly about why she joined a Daisy BirthingÂ® antenatal class and also talks about 'feeling unprepared' even 2nd time around!
Lucy would love to receive your comments ....... so feel free to post them here!
Sometimes babies can be so incredibly distracting...
As I stared into the bewitching eyes of my friend's just-fed-and-happy 3 week old baby last week, it hit me I still needed inspiration for this post. But I was so utterly hooked by her beautiful button nose, tiny eyes and little fingers, I couldn't think of anything.
'Shall we ask you mummy?' I whispered. Fortunately, without a second's pause, my friend began to tell me exactly what this week's post should be on.
'Sugar' she said. 'It's all I can think about. It's what consumes my mind all the time. I'm constantly hungry, and all I can think about is sugar.'
OK, Get those hips going to a bit of Bolly!
Added as the 'fun' standing element of our class, when mums just wanna let go and get their hips moving, Bolly has without a doubt proved very popular. And so it should, as with moves which gently lengthen the Psoas muscle from origin on T12 as well as insetion on the inner thigh bone, it really can get your hips and pelvis ready for birth and make more space for baby.
Plus of course, it makes us feel so good! Maybe not cool (but as Uju asked Is Parenthood the Death of Cool?) but certainly happy! And a happy mum means high endorphins and a gush of feel good to baby!
So here's the music (CD's can also be purchased from your Daisy teacher) which comes to you with a huge thank you to Sophie DJ Tott, our composer and also to all the amazing Daisy Birthing teachers who are not afraid to get their hips moving in the name of confident birth!...
