I'm very excited to have had the opportunity to ask the wonderful Nat Kringoudis about the pill and the effects that it has on our body, trying to get pregnant and ovulating.
If you are thinking about getting pregnant and are currently on the pill or have just come off it, you are going to love this interview.
I was on the pill for 12 years before I went off it last February. My hubby and I then started trying for a baby 4 months later. It blew my mind how the pill had effected my body, I hadn't had period pain and acne issues ever but it hit me full on when I stopped taking the pill. It scared me and I decided to read up on what the pill actually does to your body. It is a worry and I won't ever be going back on it.
Over to Nat now with some great advice and information...
I am so excited to have the very first Radiant Mama interview here and with the lovely Olivia Anderson.
Olivia is the partner of former AFL footballer Shane Crawford and the mother of four boys. Yep, four boys which includes twins so needless to say, she has her hands full.
Olivia has recently launched her new website and blog Flat Out Mum.
"Flat Out Mum is about sharing idea’s on how you can lighten the load, helpful tips to improve the mechanics of the daily grind and rejoice in the simple pleasures of daily life."
Get comfy, grab a cuppa and enjoy the mama wisdom with Olivia...
+ Introduce us to your family, how many children do you have and how old are they?
Charlie is 8, Ben 6 and the twins Jack & Harry just turned 3.
In years, Shane is 40 :)
+ Pregnancy is a life changing experience, what was your favourite part of being pregnant? What was your not so favourite part of being pregnant?
I loved my first pregnancy with Charlie as I could rest on the weekends, go to bed early & really focus on myself. All that changes when you have your second child onwards. I had really bad morning sickness with Ben & even worse with the twins, so then it became more about getting through each day in the healthiest way I could.
But I always love when you start to feel the baby move and you start that bonding process with your little bub.
+ During pregnancy you really need to be careful what you do and don’t eat. What was one item of food that you struggled to remove from your diet? Did you substitute it with something else?
I really love coffee but luckily once I became pregnant the smell of it was a of a turn off & it tasted extra bitter so it became easy to remove. I realised how much ‘deli meat” I ate but it wasn't so hard for me to avoid most things. Being extra conscious of providing the best nutrition to your baby was a good incentive for me.
