Wel­come to Oc­to­ber 2016

Mother & Baby - - CONTENTS -

In­hale, ex­hale, and count to 10... that’s what I usu­ally mum­ble un­der my breath when I find my­self torn be­tween work and a zil­lion other com­mit­ments. Wouldn’t it be dandy to kick back, put your feet up and tune the world out, even if only for a few min­utes? While the need to re­lax is cer­tainly not over­rated, when you’re ex­pect­ing or re­spon­si­ble for a tiny per­son, it should be­come an essen­tial part of your day! Think about it... how can you ex­pect to do your best for your baby, when you ne­glect your own needs? This is why, our Oc­to­ber is­sue is all about YOU! That’s right, you’ve earned it. Whether it’s a lit­tle bit of this and a lit­tle bit of that—shop­ping, a spa week­end, a baby­moon or even just a night out on the town with your girl­friends—we think it’s time to spend some qual­ity ‘me time’ be­fore you’re el­bows-deep in baby pow­der and di­a­pers. Our feel-good is­sue tells you ex­actly what you need to do to re­lax your body and mind, be­fore the baby ar­rives. With sto­ries that de­tail ways to beat those preg­nancy blues, and how to feel fab­u­lous—we have it all. More­over, if you’re one who en­joys read­ing, we’re sure you’re aware of the ex­ten­sion on ma­ter­nity leave, or the con­tro­ver­sial com­mer­cial surrogacy ban. In this is­sue, we’ve delved deeper to give you a com­pre­hen­sive look at both. Apart from that, we’ve also got in­ter­est­ing ways in which you can help your chil­dren de­velop into well-rounded adults. From go­ing against tra­di­tion and un-school­ing your kids by giv­ing them a more prac­ti­cal ed­u­ca­tion, to mu­sic ther­apy as a means to cope with var­i­ous is­sues, we have it all. Now, all that’s left is to take some time out, sit back and en­joy the is­sue we’ve so lov­ingly put to­gether for you. We hope you make the most of it! Cheers!
