The PSS Roadshow continues by Susie

This week I managed to squeeze in another Pregnancy Sickness Support Roadshow event, so here I am with an update a little earlier than expected.

I was kindly invited to speak to the mums at Mere Green 0-5 Stay and Play in Sutton Coldfield.  I would like to say a few thank yous.  Firstly, thank you very much to Lindsay, Karen and all the mums at Mere Green 0-5 for welcoming me so warmly to your playgroup.  Thank you also to my friend, Katie, for coming along to give me some moral support.  Finally, thank you to all the little ones who waited very patiently for their story time while I said a few words about hyperemesis gravidarum, Pregnancy Sickness Support and the nine months of campaign.

Can't beat a bit of potato printing!
On a different note, this week I also received written confirmation from Birmingham City University that I will be lecturing their student midwives in February. So I am now officially a visiting lecturer! I will even get paid a modest fee which I will of course donate to the nine months of campaign.

My next event is a Play Date organised by Mums in the Know on 18 October. I will have the added complication of being just one week into my recovery following knee surgery.  Perhaps a little ambitious but, thankfully, my wonderfully supportive mum and dad will be on hand to chauffeur me door to door and to play with Charlotte while I find a chair to park myself on! Check back in a couple of weeks to see how I manage on my crutches!

  1. You're doing so much Susie, it's great to hear about all the places you are raising awareness! And how exciting, the official-ness of the letter inviting you to be a visiting lecturer! Good Luck with the op, I do hope all goes well xx

  2. Thanks Amanda. The op went well thank you. I have had a practice on my crutches and am hoping they will let me go home soon. You are also doing really well. You are going to have lots of fantastic products to auction at the end. Can't wait to see all the finished items.
