Birth Control


Breastfeeding is sometimes used as a method of birth control.

  • But only if baby is exclusively breastfeed (i.e nothing other than breastmilk is given to your child)
  • Only if baby is under six month’s of age
  • Only if mother’s menstrual cycle has not yet started back again after labour

This method is not 100% reliable. You could still get pregnant even if you are breastfeeding as ovulation can occur before your period starts back.

A more reliable method of birth control is the "mini-pill" contraceptive prescribed by your doctor which is a progestogen-only pill .

Avoid contraceptive pills containing oestrogen while you are breastfeeding.

For more information, you may be best to speak with your doctor or midwife.  A midwife can usually prescribe contraception (pills and condoms) while you are still under her care, when baby is under six months.

Relaunch of Website


I’m just testing a new feature on my blog, which will hopefully be a great addition to my new website


Relaunch of my little website is expected to be happening in about 4 hours time. I’m so excited. Just got to get kids dinner and bedtime over with and then I can start.


well for the past 9 or 10 months, I have been working towards a whole new website with the help of Lynny and Kym. I just outgrew my old one.

I got this hilarious email from Lynny today, it was a nice surprise as I didn't know when our actual launch date would be:

Pack your bags for the hospital, I predict you will have your first contraction at about 3pm today your time, and baby will arrive at approx 8.25 pm tonight.

This new baby is referring to my new website

So excited!!

Live Competition Draw

So to make a change from all these messages that I sit here typing, I thought I would do a live video draw. I'm giving away three tickets for the Christchurch Parent and Child show, being held on 22 and 23 August 2009.

Bit goofy, but a bit of fun.
