We would like to say a huge thanks to Suzanne who recently volunteered her time at our fundraising Bumpathon. She was a pleasure to work with, making our mums feel at ease, and was professional throughout the day.

A lovely person with a fantastic talent. Thanks again Suzanne. xx

The wonderful folk at Kidzeco recently invited me along to their annual Bumpathon, where amazingly talented body-paint artists worked their magic on twenty mums-to-be, kiddos and dads-to-be too!

Almost £1770 was raised during the day for The Special Care Baby Unit at St. John’s Hospital, Livingston.  What an achievement!  Well done to everyone involved in making this happen.

This is a wee selection of the all the beautiful women involved and the stunning artistry of the body-painters.

You are pregnant and you are powerful. You are bold and you are beautiful. Go forward in your boldness, in your beauty and in your contentedness. Trust your body to birth and know that the collective power of women worldwide will be with you.

For one little boy in particular, the whole day was just too much fun!  The sun was shining and the room was warm, but the floor was cool and the perfect place to take a much needed disco nap!

Finally, I’d love to say a huge thank you to Tracy and all of the wonderful, helpful and friendly staff at Kidzeco for welcoming me along to this year’s Bumpathon.  It was such a pleasure to meet so many beautiful Mamas-to be too!

wishing you all lots of love and luck for the exciting journey ahead.
