I was prescribed some remedies , started feeling better almost immediately and have never had bronchitis since! I was so impressed by my improvement both physically and emotionally that the following year I started studying and have never looked back since.

I recently had a focus group with several London Mums about the pros and cons of motherhood. Specifically, we discussed how becoming a mother both boosts and challenges our lives. We wondered where mums get their physical and mental energy, their ability to multitask and motivation. We investigated the medical aspects of motherhood and we found out that it is now scientifically proven that pregnancy and child rearing enhance mental capabilities.
