Festive times are milestones that can be difficult for many reasons. Stress comes when our thoughts and feelings are out of synch with the actions we are taking. This can be particularly true over the festive season when there is considerable pressure to appear outwardly happy despite inner turmoil. We have created a series of blogs giving various coping strategies.

When Abi and husband Scott found they were pregnant naturally, they were ecstatic.
“I felt as though everything had fallen in to place,” recalls Abi. “We both really wanted children and as far as we were concerned that was that. We would be having a baby in a few months time.”
