Mama Items I Love

City Mini Baby Jogger – easiest to use pushchair!
Boppy pillow – I can’t hold baby up on my own, so this is priceless.
Gemini Beco – I loved this front pack and it got a lot of use with my reflux/colic baby.
A bath seat – I can’t hold baby the entire time they’re in the bath plus it gives you hands free to soap up!
Jolly Jumper – buys ten minutes at a time of hands free.
Electronic Rocker – again, buys you hands free time.
Breast pump – because I was a mix feeder.
Avent bottles – these were our favourites for mix feeding.

Courses for Managing Fibromyalgia and the Symptoms

You vs Fibromyalgia full eCourse – this is where I take you through my research and experience and help you to make your plans to fight chronic pain, chronic fatigue. I give you the tools to cut down your journey so it doesn’t take as long as mine did.

Treating Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia website has a multitude of free and paid self-study resources, including this one on pacing. It takes pacing much further than I can in my resources.

Pregnancy and Fibromyalgia Workbook – this is the course I formulated to take the research, personal experience and informal surveys of other fibro mamas I conducted for my book one step further – to help you make concrete plans for managing pain, fatigue and the third trimester and postpartum periods with fibromyalgia. My book was only the second book available in Amazon and I have never seen another course about pregnancy and fibromyalgia.
