I am a physio in here in Brisbane and deal mostly now with Women's Health-related patients. I heard about Dr Gottfried's book a short while ago and it's on my to-read list! I love the tiara idea! I think it's so important for any postnatal mom, whether new or 9 1/2 yrs later, to take time out for themselves. We don't do it enough. Even to eat - I tend to catch myself eating standing up or on the run :)

Thank you so much for your blogs, I really enjoy them and I advise my patients to read them as well.

Fiona Scrymgeour 10/04/2013 3:31:01 PM Transformation is an amazing process when you are pregnant but also creating a new life for you and your young children. The greatest stress is balancing being a mum and earning an income. There are some great options available to avoid going back to the stress of work and bringing home the stress to your family. I have started a fantastic work from home based business which is just perfect for having both flexibility and income flow. If you are interested in transforming you work and motherhood have a look at www.improvesuccess.com.au for some options. Wishing yo all the best in your transformation!
