What are the benefits of prenatal acupuncture?

Some people whizz through pregnancy with no worries at all, whilst others seem to suffer from a variety of ailments. Prenatal acupuncture is a therapy that many women have found to be quite helpful, as it eases many of the discomforts associated with pregnancy. 

Originating in China thousands of years ago, acupuncture is used to rebalance your body’s energy along the meridians (energy pathways inside your body), restoring your body to health. Ultra fine acupuncture needles are inserted into points on your body that activate certain nerves, stimulating the release of chemicals (such as endorphins) that block pain pathways.  

Some of the conditions that acupuncture has provided relief for pregnant women include lower back pain, morning sickness, depression, problems sleeping and headaches. Let’s take a look at each of these in turn, so you can decide if this type of therapy is suitable for your ailments. (more…)

Shawford duck race

Had a brilliant time at the Shawford duck race on Sunday.

We joined lots of people in the garden of the Bridge Pub early in the afternoon and we selected the right duck! We paid a pound and then had a drink in the sunshine for half an hour before making our way to the start line.

I can think of no better place to spend a Sunday afternoon, than on the leafy banks of the river Itchen in the Summer sunshine.

The cheers went up as over a thousand plastic yellow ducks made their way into the river, helped along by wading teenagers fully dressed and a few professional looking canoeists. ( They didn’t capsize, they were therefore professional!) (more…)

Bowling in Eastleigh, what a lot of fun!

We decided to go bowling in Eastleigh at the Swan Centre for the first time this week-end. You do need to pre book over the week-end as the slots go very quickly. If you go on a Sunday, parking if you are there for a couple of hours will be fixed at £2.50, so cheaper than the Saturday and the roads were lovely and quiet too.

I took my 12 year old daughter and it was great! A lot less stressful than taking a 12 year old clothes shopping. The shoe hire was part of the price and I pre booked a big pitcher of diet coke as I just thought it looked cool! I think the ticket price for us both for one game which was ample ( took about 30 minutes) was just under £10 so MUCH cheaper than an afternoon at the cinema.

Being a bit dim I asked for help to get us started but actually it was self explanatory you just tap in your name, if you can handle a mobile you can handle the bowling alley machine. (more…)

Getting your child to learn Arduino

With the earth becoming a progressively complex place to live, it is necessary for children to understand STEM learning system to prepare themselves to take part in the future personnel and to know how technological innovation works. Apart from the practical applications offered by STEM learning, it is also fun for kids!

STEM learning concept offers a lot of advantages for children. They can learn the way to put on their knowledge to fix the problems that happen in their daily lives, like repairing a damaged toy or finding out how to build a simple robot using Arduino starter kits.

I am sure you and your kid know about Arduino but sometime you don’t know what Arduino is. It is normal if you don’t. in this article, i am going to explain. Before we discuss about Arduino, it is necessary to understand microcontroller. it is built-in circuits which are simply miniature computers. This device can work with simple software programs. it requires less energy and can be powered for hours and days but this device can process data a bit faster than human in this earth. Arduino is opensource platform that contain circuit boards so microcontrollers can be used easily. (more…)

Advice on Co-Parenting During the Coronavirus

By Attorney Ashley Balicki

I wanted to give you some guidance and general advice on Co-Parenting During COVID-19.

1. Decision-Making: If you, a member of your household, or your child are diagnosed with COVID-19 immediately advise the other parent. Do not hide this information. Communicate with your child(ren)’s parent and agree on uniform practices in both households. For example, parents should confer with one another and agree upon uniform practices with the child(ren) in each household such as not having play dates or having children visit others outside outdoor activities at each home and communicating with extended family members via telephone/FaceTime. If you must convey information or diagnoses to your child that may alarm or upset your child, speak with the other parent to create a joint message before speaking with the child. (more…)
