Birthlight Helen's picture

There is current debate about whether Vitamin D supplementation can be of benefit to mother and baby if taken pre and or postnatally. What is your personal experience of this? Have you been recommended to take vitamin D during or after pregnancy and/or to give it to your baby? Have you noticed any effects? Do you think it can help reduce pain in labour? Please share your thoughts and experiences!

Do high levels of vitamin D decrease pain during childbirth?

Co-sleeping

Is co-sleeping putting your baby at risk?

NICE  (National Institute for Health Care and Clinical Excellence) is currently updating its guidance on post-natal care for use in the NHS on reducing the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). The recommendations below are not clear about the risk involved. There ‘may be an increase in the number of cases of SIDS, and the term ‘association’ has been used to make it clear that there is no cause-effect relationship at stake. But what will parents hear?

MariaYoga's picture

Hi, i am looking to get into one of those NCT ante-natal course for experience, learning and development.

If you know of someone that is due to go and goes alone or their partner cannot make it with them can you ask them if they can take me instead as a 'friend', London or around. I am happy to pay for half of the course.

Thanks.

Reflux

Nadine Santus's picture

Hi folks

Just getting into being back on the forum and already have something for which I would like some advice.

I have a little boy in my classes called Thomas. He is 11 months old, and has recently joined my classes.

He has quite major reflux and seems to take in a lot of water during class in general but his mum says particularly in submerson work. He then struggles with it afterwards for the rest of the day sometimes.  It seems to be worse if he is moving forward whilst being submerged as opposed to just going straight down.
