Perhaps the most eagerly awaited season has arrived: Spring has well and truly sprung, and we can look forward to warmer days after the recent chillier winter months. Our stunning spring issue is packed to the brim with inspiration, advice and real-life experiences. For those planning to make the most of the milder temperatures and hit the parks and playgrounds with your children, Laura Markham (page 28) has provided some great tips on how to deal with meltdowns when you’re out and about. For breastfeeding and soon-to-be-breastfeeding mamas, Pinky McKay (page 52) encourages you to “trust your baby and trust yourself and that powerful connection you have with your little one”, as she busts some common breastfeeding myths. On page 70, Helen Bartrom shares a mother’s unique birth story: overcoming fear and challenges to experience an empowering birth that filled her with “joy and pride, even with a few hiccups and unexpected turns along the way”. Gabriel Shannon offers some great advice on page 58 about how to look after your pelvic floor before and after birth, and how there is no one-size-fits-all method of care. She stresses the importance of “alignment, posture and breathing” and that “strengthening” is not always the best option. We wish you and your families fun, love and happiness through this beautiful spring season. Love from the TNP Team xxx
