Luis Calow - Photographer
As a new dad Lu knows how important it is to capture those special moments during your pregnancy and when your new baby arrives. He is a talented lifestyle, engagement and wedding photographer, but also captures those special memories you create with your new little bundle!
...and in Lu's words "I'm a down to earth, softly spoken Northerner living in London with my partner in crime, our new little girl and our pooch! I know waaay too many film and Friends quotes to be considered healthy, and when I'm not shooting weddings I'll be with my family and the hound getting lost in the woods/swimming/binging Netflix/cooking!"

Babycare TENS - drug-free pain relief for labour and beyond.
TENS is a drug-free kind of pain relief often used by women in the early stages of labour. TENS stands for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation.
A maternity TENS machine consists of a battery-powered, hand-held controller connected by fine leads to four flat pads. The pads are covered in a firm gel that helps them stick to your back.
The machine sends small, safe pulses of electrical current via the leads to the pads on your skin. The pulses pass through your skin and into your muscles and tissues. This gives you a gentle tingling or buzzing sensation, which may be stronger or weaker, depending on the setting level.
A TENS machine has buttons that you can use to control the frequency and strength of the pulses. There's also a boost button for you to press with your thumb when you want maximum output from the machine. This may help you to get through each contraction.
