Hampers for new mums contain all the treats that were off limits while pregnant

TwitterFacebook

When Sally Bunkham was pregnant with her first child, she really missed a lot of her favourite foods—not to mention her best-loved alcoholic tipples—that weren’t allowed. 

Bunkham’s longing for these items grew even stronger when she became pregnant again a few months after giving birth. That’s when she got an idea for a new venture. 

Three years on from her first pregnancy, she’s just launched a business which sends hampers full of goodies that are forbidden (or at least, not recommended) during pregnancy.  Read more…

Periods are normal, but kids pointing them out in their sketches is something else.
