Ask The Midwife Review

Pregnancy is a rollercoaster ride of being super happy one minute, and then worrying about something the next.

I’ve found especially that when it’s your first baby and the pregnancy is classed as ok; you don’t get a lot of support outside of your usual midwife appointments when they test your wee, blood pressure and check you’re measuring on track in the later stages. You’ve got your green notes to carry about with you but the minute something doesn’t feel right or if you’re having a bit of a wobble, it’s hard to know where to turn and not feel as though you are pestering them or being a drama queen.

You should never feel as though you are being a burden, especially when this is their job at the end of the day and they are supposed to help guide you through your pregnancy in a way that is good for both you and baby. It is very easy to get sucked into the online world and start googling things which makes everything feel 100 times more magnified and you instantly think the worst case scenario.

Buying your Beauty Products in Bulk

If you love beauty then you will relate to this post. Once you find a product you like, you want to buy it in bulk without going mad on your budget.

One way to do this could be buying from a salon wholesaler such as Capital Hair & Beauty. I had a browse on their site and picked out some of my favourite products they offer:

Hi Brow Growth & Conditioning Serum

Sienna X Gradual Glowing Self Tan 200ml

SBC Collagen Gel 250ml

Dr Paw Paw 25ml Yellow Original Clear Balm

SBC Vitamin E Gel 1000ml

These are all on offer for reasonable prices and now I know they sell SBC products, I will be sure to look here first for some of my favourite gel based products. It’s an alternative to the traditional drugstore shop and offers you some of those salon based products you can’t normally buy anywhere other than salons themselves.

Thanks for reading
