Word to your Mumma

Pregnant through Covid

Pregnant during a pandemic

24 weeks pregnant and so far, so good, not feeling too anxious or particularly worried. I’m still early enough in my pregnancy that midwife appointments are spaced far apart, and I have no imminent jabs or scans, any worries I have are range from how much extra weight will I put on through boredom snacking during isolation with little exercise to will I be able to buy formula and nappies if this drags on? Whilst my July due date is still far off, as time goes on I do find myself wondering what things will be like by then. Will...

Meet Clare- Founder of Made by Coopers

Meet Clare- Founder of Made by Coopers

Give us the Made by Coopers birth story...  Created by myself and my partner Darren, the brand began as an idea whilst travelling around India on a three-month yoga expedition. India was part of a personal healing journey for me and Darren. After years of suffering with anxiety disorders (and Darren with sleep problems) throughout most of the latter part of my twenties, yoga and meditation finally gave me some solace. Meditating with frankincense and regularly practicing yoga in London was just the start. I knew I wanted to delve deeper into this healing work, and was drawn to India where...

I quickly became passionate about sharing its wonder powers with others, and started buying jars for friends with babies. That’s when I had the idea to create...

Meet Antonia & Jonny- Founders of Nursem

We love a good birth story so give us the dets of how Nursem came into the world? Antonia: We like to think of Nursem as our third baby - the other two Oscar (2) and Harry (8 months) come in more of a human form - so talking of births is definitely relevant! The idea which led to the birth of Nursem came about when I was off work for a week due to contact dermatitis - this was a result of the constant hand washing required as a nurse. I did a little digging and found this to...

Meet Rebecca & Clare- Founders of Balance Me

Meet Rebecca & Clare- Founders of Balance Me

Back in 2005 long term stresses and 21st century fast paced living had taken its toll on co-founding sisters, Rebecca and Clare’s health and skin. They’d developed skin reactions over time – incredibly sensitive, red and suffering from hormonal breakouts where previously they could use any skincare without consequence. They turned to natural skincare at a time when it wasn’t highly regarded by consumers or the beauty industry, with the belief they could create powerful natural skincare that would solve their skin concerns. They wanted to effect change and Balance Me was born.  A skincare range that’s evolved as the sisters...
