The Mid Surrey Family Grapevine Area

Photo of Editor

Thinking out loud...in the course of producing this magazine, I contact many people day to day and this is normally by ‘phone. Over the years the tone at the other end has significantly changed from genuinely chatty, mainly about family life, to ‘I’m so busy’, ‘just rushing out’. I know - I’m busy too.

Shouldn’t we all just try and take a moment, a short pause, to talk to each other? Will this reticence to ‘pass the time of day’ spill over within family units from adult to child. The younger generation can teach us how to text at the speed of light and use multiple social media sites. But will our children learn the most important art of good communication by our example, or will they grow up not knowing how to listen properly and respond nicely? That’s what I was thinking about. Much of my time is taken up with ensuring the printed free listings remain comprehensive and accurate. This is to help parents make choices for themselves and their children. I do this by calling every number, (ongoing job!) and in this issue there are approximately 1700. Some are difficult to source without significant investigation, so have a good look through-you might find just the information you need. Have a happy Easter and enjoy the onset of Spring and all it brings.

Baby Hip Health Awareness Week 11th – 17th March 2013 Up to 2000 children a year are diagnosed with Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip

A range of conditions from mild instability to total dislocation of the hip. Early detection means DDH can often be corrected by a simple outpatient treatment. Late or missed diagnosis can leave a child requiring hospital stays, operations and potentially a permanent disability. The aim of Baby Hip Health Awareness Week is to continue to raise awareness amongst parents and health professionals of the vital need to check babies' hips during the first few weeks of life to prevent unnecessary pain and disability in later years.

Hip checks are not 100% accurate! The signs parents should look out for include: l one leg appearing shorter than the other l an extra deep crease on the inside of the thigh l crawling with one leg dragging or walking with a limp or a waddle

A - Z Support and Services

Local service that guarantees to eliminate head lice! A local entrepreneur, Justine Armitage has brought to Esher every parents dream – a service that removes and completely shuts down that most irritating and undermining of problems – an infestation of head lice. Ask any parent and their face immediately registers the pain and anguish these little blighters inflict. 50% of all 4-11 year olds now get head lice and not only is the number rising for this group, but the over 11’s and under 4’s are joining them in significant numbers. Where this service differs from the traditional products people currently use is the fact that it is effective – 100% and guaranteed. Justine was inspired to buy the franchise and set up The Hairforce – Lice Assassins in Esher because, as she puts it ‘parents and children deserve effective support and not be sold false hope in a bottle’. The professionally trained Justine delivers a clearing process that is all about naturally killing and removing the problem. The lice are removed efficiently and effectively with a specialist lice hoover, and then using revolutionary technology from the University of Utah, she simply dehydrates the eggs – those persistent nits – without a chemical or pesticide in sight. Finally the eggs are combed out taking all the workload off the parent’s hands. Two appointments, 7 days apart and the infestation is completely shut down. Compare that to countless hours, a family under siege and a small fortune wasted on product. Justine and her team of fellow Lice Assassins motto is a clear one ‘We do exactly what we say on the tin, time and time again’. Simply call Justine on 01372 464913 and book an appointment to put an end to the nightmare.

When you’re buying new furniture and kitchen appliances for your home, have you ever thought about visiting a reuse showroom? The Surrey Reuse Network offers a wide range of good quality items at affordable prices. Made up of a group of seven charities, the network aims to find new homes for donated items as well as offering training and employment opportunities and helping local families in need. You’ll find everything you need to make a house a home – you could pick up baby cots from £20, beds from £30, sofas from £45 and a fourpiece table and chairs from £50. Busy mum of three Sandra Richardson regularly visits the showrooms. She said: “I’m proud that my house is full of bargain furniture I’ve found with visits to Surrey’s reuse showrooms - my friends always tell me how nice my house looks.” Whether you buy or donate goods you will be making green savings – buying reusable items saves them from going to landfill, which is both financially and environmentally costly. To find your nearest reuse showroom call 0800 082 0180 or visit www.surreyreusenetwork.org.uk.

Fertility & First Trimester Yoga Classes Are you trying to conceive?

Whether you are trying to conceive naturally or with medical treatment, Fertility Yoga can help boost reproductive health, increase fertility and enhance conception. Fertility yoga classes are restorative & therapeutic and are specifically designed to create optimum health in the reproductive system. As Fertility journeys’ can be extremely stressful, emotional and consuming, these classes also aim to balance the body’s hormones and emotions by providing stress relief and relaxation, helping create a clear and positive mind.

Are you in your First Trimester?

These fertility yoga classes are also great for early pregnancy. Fertility yoga classes offer safe poses that enhance the blood flow and energy to your womb, encouraging the delivery of vital nutrients to help baby develop and grow. This is a wonderfully exciting time, but for some it can also be a time of worry and angst, especially if you have suffered early miscarriage in the past. Fertility yoga provides a safe, nurturing environment, giving you time to destress, renew your energy, relax and bond with your baby. “I can’t tell you how brilliant I have found these classes. I couldn’t believe how fortunate I was to be able to be supported by people that understood, cared and knew exactly what I was going through. I instantly felt in a better frame of mind. I really appreciate all that you’ve done to help me successfully conceive.”

Group Classes, 1-2-1 Fertility Classes or Private Couples Classes Contact me if you would like further information on; Hayley Chalwin Tel: 0772 540 2650 www.yoganory.co.uk

I would be pleased to receive editorial about anything a little out of the norm, that would be of interest and generally informative for Family Grapevine readers. If you are passionate about something that could be of interest to local Grapevine readers and you would like to raise awareness, send me an email. If appropriate I will either put it in print, on the website or maybe both!
