Maternal Health, Partner Charity -

With Mother's Day coming up, the life-saving work of our partner charity Women and Children First (WCF) deserves a spotlight. I recently met their amazing and engaged team in London to discuss how WCF supports disadvantaged rural communities around the world to make childbirth safer. Why do Women still die giving birth? “It is true, 300,000 women still die every year in pregnancy and childbirth – that’s one woman every two minutes. In the rural areas in developing countries in which our charity works, women are still dying of easily preventable problems. A lack of infrastructure and access to health...

When you choose a gift for a special little person, do you wonder how long they will actually play, use and cherish it before they grow out of it? Perhaps a younger sibling will fall in love with it.

Eco Essentials -

As winter looms, the season of simmering soups, sitting by the fireplace and wrapping up is merely weeks away. One of my favourite winter products to keep little ones warm (but everyone really 😊) are the adorable warming cushions/microwavable soft animals by EFIE. Handcrafted from organic cotton, filled with organic spelt and beautiful in design, they might become your family’s cuddle friends over the cold months. Conventional hot water bottles can be a concern for parents of small children, as they come with the risk of leakage and - if too hot - burning or overheating little ones. That’s why...
