Madeleine Shaw is one of those girls that just glows (her first two books were aptly named ‘Get the Glow‘ and ‘Ready Steady Glow‘). She is such a gentle, kind and warm soul – with an incredibly infectious and positive personality – and I for one, feel so fortunate enough to have spent some time with her and bonding over our pregnancies! Madeleine is due 6 weeks ahead of me, and I managed to grab 5 minutes with here before she went on maternity leave, for my brand new Interview series, Power 10 – which is, you guessed it, 10 fire questions, where I will be interviewing all the ladies out there who are inspiring me. So scroll on down if  you’re interested in Madeleine’s tips on life, career and pregnancy!  Continue Reading

This pregnancy is going by so fast, I can’t believe I am 7 months already, with only 12 weeks to go! Although we cannot wait to meet our little man this Autumn, and feeling so desperate to cuddle and touch his little face and body – I am personally finding it all a tiny bit daunting… I guess it’s the unknown, and all those question marks. Do I have everything for the labour, for the nursery, for the house? Car seat, pram, enough clothes, will I be able to breastfeed, how will I know what he wants? Luckily I am a firm believer in trusting your own instinct, and I am pretty sure the strong mother’s instinct will help guide me along the way, if I ever feel a bit lost and overwhelmed (which I am sure I will)… But for now I am going to run you through the remaining of my 2nd trimester and the unknown of moving into the 3rd trimester.
