Fitness & Fun
An Introduction to post natal pilates and yogo – Ingrid Palmer
Busylizzy run a range of postnatal fitness classes for mums. Our innovative approach to Pilates and Yoga takes traditional principles and tailors them for new mums, working those stubborn areas affected by pregnancy and labour, and toning the pelvic floor and abdominals! The best bit? You train with your baby right there with you! No childcare required. This workshop will provide an introduction to postnatal exercise, a hands-on demonstration of some of the key techniques and moves involved, and a chance to ask questions of our instructor, Ingrid. www.busylizzyhorshamandcrawley.co.uk

What to eat when growing a human?
Pregnancy is a time of emotional turmoil as you become excited about the life you are growing inside you and are responsible for. There’s also the tinge of regret that your body may never be the same again, morning sickness and other nasty symptoms set in, your energy disappears and, consequently, your desire to exercise. Add to this that relaxation seems to be a thing of the past as you have far too much to think about with plans for the future and nesting at home. Perhaps you lose your sex drive completely and become concerned how this is affecting your relationship with your partner. All of these issues are completely normal in pregnancy but, happily, also avoidable with a little bit of time and effort. Your emotional experience of pregnancy can affect both your health and that of your baby. Being happy and healthy will help you enjoy this special and unique time of life and this will, consequently, pass down to your baby and their arrival into this world.
Hilary Sparkes is an international accrediated lactation consultant and breastfeeding councellor, who has worked for over 20 years supporting premature and term babies to successfully breastfeed and well as short and long term expressing of breast milk. She is also qualified children’s/neonatal nurse as well as a mother of four.
Find the answers to a positive, empowered birth experience
Georgie Kirwan Ferreira - Hypnosis for birth practitioner and Clinical Hypnotherapist.
Have you ever wondered what hypnobirthing is all about?
Maybe you’ve heard good things but aren’t sure it’s right for you?
Perhaps you’re concerned whether it would ‘work’ or you’ve got a sceptical partner?
Maybe you’re totally bricking it about giving birth, and feel like you want to prepare but you’re kind of putting it off for the moment, a bit too anxious to have to think about the prospect of how this baby is actually going to come out?!
You’re quite possibly a bit of a control freak, you want to be totally empowered and to be able to own your birthing experience, but you think the ‘Hypno’ in hypnobirthing is just a bit weird and something only tree hugging hippies and silent, incense burning home-birthers are interested in?
If you or your partner, have answered yes’(or even maybe) to any of the above, no matter what kind of birth you’re planning, then please come along to find out more- I’m pretty sure you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the reality of it all- and there’ll be no swinging pendulums or clucking chickens, I promise!

If you’re thinking about how you can balance a family life while generating a great income, come along and hear how this incredible opportunity could work for you”.
