Welcome... Welcome to the winter issue of the North Surrey & South West Thames Family Grapevine. As well as extensive lists of where to go out with your little ones, we have also included information on special Christmas events that you can enjoy with them. With rumours of another cold winter circulating, if you intend to go out, wrap up warm and stay safe over the festive season. Going forward, the combined North Surrey & South West Thames edition will again be split into their original magazines; one covering South West London and the other covering Richmond, Kingston & Wimbledon. Each published 3 times a year. Look out for us in our new formats in the new year.

What’s On

Can I travel by air safely during my Pregnancy? ~ Dr Eko Zhang, Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologists, Richmond Practice In most cases, if you are carrying one baby, pregnant women can travel safely up to 36 weeks gestation providing the pregnancy has been straightforward. However, airlines are sometimes unwilling to carry women who are more than 28 weeks pregnant because of the risk of premature labour. Other factors airlines take into account are whether it is a multiple pregnancy or not, the length of the flight and how many weeks pregnant you will be on the return journey. Make sure you check the airline’s policy and your travel insurance before you book your flight. Airlines usually refuse to fly pregnant women who have had blood clots in the legs or a previous pre-term delivery. It is a good idea to get written permission from your doctor or midwife, particularly if you are over 28 weeks pregnant. The letter should confirm your due date and state that they have examined you and you are unlikely to go into labour in the next 72 hours. Ideally, you should avoid having travel vaccinations if you are pregnant. There is not enough evidence that it is safe for your unborn baby (NHS 2010a). Live vaccines, such as yellow fever, could be particularly risky. That is because there is a chance you or your baby may develop the disease. Some reports state that exposure to natural atmospheric radiation from flying while pregnant can increase the risk of miscarriage or abnormalities in unborn babies. However, the risk is negligible if you only fly a few times in a year. Be realistic about the possibility of a medical emergency while you are away. Give consideration to the destination you are going to and whether there will be care available if an emergency arises. Take your pregnancy notes and contact details of medical professionals at home and at your destination. On the plane, make sure you drink plenty water, avoid caffeine and wear TEDS (thrombo-embolus deterrent) compression stockings. Women flying while pregnant should have an aisle seat for easy access to the bathroom and moving around as much as possible. When seated, wear the seat belt under your belly and as low as possible over your hips. You should not fly in small planes that do not have pressurised cabins. Consult your doctor or midwife if you: ~ have any doubts and need advice before booking your flight ~ have any spotting, diabetes or high blood pressure ~ have had a previous premature birth ~ need advice on travel vaccinations ~ need advice on what to do during the flight. Dr Zhang MBBS, MSc, MRCOG, PhD is a consultant obstetrician and gynaecologists and a sub-specialist in fetal and maternal medicine. Dr Zhang can assist in a medical emergency, with all scans and procedures and ante-natal care to 24 weeks gestation.

SEE THEM BALANCE SEE THEM BEAM, AT THE LITTLE GYM The Little Gym runs weekly, curriculum-based, gymnastics classes for children from 4 months to 12 years of age. The gym provides a safe, colourful haven where children can gain confidence in a non-competitive environment, with close guidance and encouragement from highly trained and friendly instructors. Our tailored classes help children get the most from every stage of their development; they promote co-ordination, balance, rhythm and flexibility, as well as an opportunity to let off steam, make new friends and have lots of FUN! Our classes allow each child to grow their skills at their own pace. They combine gymnastics, music and games and provide a personalised learning experience that evolves week-by-week. Throughout the programme, parents are kept abreast of their child’s individual progress.

Whilst grown-ups accompany the under 3’s, parents of older children can spectate from a

comfortable viewing lobby. We offer a free introductory class, so that parents have an opportunity to see the delight in their child, as they achieve there first Monkey Jump or Forward role. Classes are held throughout the day, all year round, so please don’t delay and give us a call at your nearest branch (see our ad on the back cover for more information). The Little Gym also provides children’s parties and fully OFSTED approved holiday camps. Please contact one of our friendly team at your local branch: Hampton Hill on tel. 020 8977 0099 or hamptonhill@thelittlegym.co.uk Wandsworth on tel. 020 8874 5657 or Wandsworth@thelittlegym.co.uk or visit www.thelittlegym.co.uk
