For anyone planning on being in the Galway area next weekend, The good ladies at mykidstime.ie are holding a Bump & Beyond Expo for pregnant mums and new parents on Sunday, May 9th at The Ardilaun.
Mykidstime is a website started by two mums in Galway and has grown from there, it’s all about things to do for your kids, and it's full of baby resources for new parents so that they know where to find things like baby swim, baby massage and other ideas to keep from cracking up in those early days with a new baby!
For the Expo they have arranged for some great speakers:
· Therese Ryan, one of Ireland’s leading Stress Management and Wellbeing Experts. She also featured in RTE’s health show “How long will you live?”.
· There will be a Baby Massage demo with Mary Kenny of Eden Massage and Swim who is a trained physiotherapist and member of the Irish Massage Therapist Association and Embody.
· Mary Joyce will be there on the day. She is a trained registered nurse with the HSE, and a practitioner of the holistic arts both in Ireland and the USA. Her focus is "Health from within" and "Feel Good Food". Mary recently appeared along with Maureen Fynes on RTE’s Dragon's Den in connection with their Feel Good Food Superfood Energy Snack.
· Nuria Lopez, fitness instructor, will be giving tips on pre-natal and post natal fitness
There will even be a free portrait sitting for each new baby on the day!
I won't be there as I'll be sitting my theory test for the um... third time, but it sounds like good fun, so I hope you get to go check it out.
Now, off to write about the vomiting bug, the internet that refuses to work and the laptop which will shortly be finding a new home on the front lawn...
