Health Round-up: A bumper start to 2013

  Happy New Year one and all! Welcome to the first health round-up of 2013 and boy, it’s a bumper edition this month. We ended 2012 with the sad news that Kerry (Multiple Mummy) had passed away shortly before Christmas. The #Healing4Kerry twitter and blog event that had been organised by New Mum Online last […]

Health round-up: Diabetes, hyperemesis gravidarum and Christmas wishes

  As 2012 – the Jubilee year with a phenomenal summer of sport – draws to an end, we have another Royal celebration to look forward to next year…the birth of a Royal baby! Of course, pregnancy isn’t always easy and, as parents, I am sure we all sympathise with HRH The Duchess of Cambridge […]

Health round-up: Sex, drugs, no rock & roll

  I’ve been in denial for the last few weeks but I can’t ignore it any longer. The Coca-Cola Christmas advert is back on our screens which can only mean one thing – the holidays are coming! Actually, it kind of signifies two things. Yes, Christmas is undoubtedly on its way but also, so are […]

Health round-up: Boobs, babies and some TLC

  You may have noticed a pink tinge to most magazines this month with boobs being the talk of the town more than ever. That’s because it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month (although I’m sure you already knew that). Breast Cancer is a serious issue – over 46,000 women and around 300 men are diagnosed with […]

Health Round-up: Childhood cancer, chicken-pox & the NHS

  As summer turns into autumn, I can’t quite believe how much has happened over the last few months. For the majority of us, the spectacle of the Olympics has been a major event in our lives this year but for others, so much more has happened. This is certainly true for Tired Mummy of […]

Health Round-up: Serious news & lighthearted Olympics

I never like to start on a serious note, but this absolutely deserves it. Since my last health round-up, I’m sure you will all be aware that Kerry (AKA Multiple Mummy) has been taken very seriously ill. I think it’s fair to say that the news sent shockwaves through the parent blogging community because of […]

Health Round-up: Birth control, hospital dash & more

The Olympics countdown is well and truly on – only 8 days to go! Are you looking forward to it? Are you hoping team GB will walk away with a treasure chest full of gold medals? If I’m honest, I’m hoping for an uneventful games. Don’t get me wrong, I’m backing our Olympians all the […]

Health Round-up: Sickness, MOTs & dreaded hay fever

Did everyone enjoy celebrating Father’s Day at the weekend? How about the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations earlier this month? To tell you the truth, the jubilee sort of passed me by. It wasn’t that I wasn’t interested. I got sick. Horribly sick. It’s one of those things that’s just not allowed when you’ve got children! […]

Health Round-up: SMA, malnutrition & zombie apocalypse

Did you go to Cybher last weekend? I was one of what seemed like only a handful of people who weren’t there and I was reading my twitter timeline with close scrutiny. It sounded like an exciting event with lots of thought provoking topics being discussed and inspirational people giving talks. But, as I sat […]

Health Round-up: Chocolate, name-calling & medicinal rollercoasters

So that’s it, Easter is over for another year. How did you fare? Did you manage to ration the chocolate so that your children didn’t gorge themselves to the point of vomiting? I haven’t read any posts about death illness by chocolate so I gather we all got through relatively unscathed. On the subject of […]

Health Round-up: Boobs, chickenpox & no days off

This last month has been a tough one for me. My maternity leave ended at the end of January, and back into the world of work I went at the start of February. So, how have I fared so far? Not too well, I’m afraid. I’m finding it an emotional rollercoaster at the moment and […]

Health Round-up: Winter Coughs, colds and a tricky customer

As we approach the end of February, I have my fingers crossed that winter is now firmly behind us. Don’t get me wrong, I love freshly fallen snow, snuggling into oversized jumpers when it’s cold…and that’s about it. I do not like melting snow turning to thick ice on the pavements, the dark mornings and […]

Health Round-up: Cheetahs, head lice & the elephant in the room

Every third Thursday of the month (yes, please put that into your diary so you don’t forget – I will most probably need to!), I’ll be here writing about new and interesting health-related blog posts that you might want to check out.
