EPILEPSY AND PREGNANCY: MY PRE-CONCEPTION COUNSELLING EXPERIENCE

18 Apr 2017

When it comes to pregnancy, counselling isn't the first thing you think about. However, when you have epilepsy, or other disability that may affect your pregnancy, you start thinking about pregnancy a long time before the actual conception takes place. With disability, risk follows and this can be a very scary prospect. That's why we went to the doctors a few years before we even started to try to conceive. We wanted all the details about how Epilepsy could affect not only our future child, but also myself. I've decided to share my experience with pre-conception counselling as I didn't really find much information about what to expect when we started exploring our options.


I thought the best way to talk about my experience is to break it down in to the different appointments that took place. I will start with the discussion I had with my husband, and then talk about how the appointments went with the various doctors we saw.

5 (ALMOST) FREE ACTIVITIES TO ENJOY WITH YOUR PARTNER DURING A DIGITAL DETOX

3 Apr 2017

It can sometimes feel as though we spend, and share our entire lives online. It is so easy to access information now with smart phones, and free wi-fi in most places that we surround ourselves with technology. Technology can be an amazing tool, but what if you want to unplug and spend time away from a screen? A recent survey by Cartridge Save found that 65% of people want to take time away from the internet and their phone at some point. Whilst some people enjoy baking in their tech free time, others enjoy gardening. I personally like to spend my non tech time with my husband and daughter, as most of my hobbies include being online.


I like to think there are plenty of activities that don't involve anything digital, yet can also include someone else, so I thought that today I would share 5 activities that I enjoy with my husband away from the screen.
