Spring: Dates for your diary

Pens at the ready! We have a few suggestions to keep you and baby busy for the next two months.


6th – Mother’s day

While all many of us really want is a lie-in or someone else to load the dishwasher, Mother’s Day is the perfect excuse to get out and about with baby. Visit an exhibition, peruse the flower markets or enjoy a spot of brunch with your family.

9th – A Midweek Massage

Fluffy robes at the ready! Spring clean your soul with an Udderly Gorgeous maternity treatment at the Cowshed Spa, Foubert’s Place, Soho. Choose a full body massage (£75 for 60 minutes) and enjoy a foot soak, soothing massage and face reviver. Utter bliss.


13th – Plan A Visit

The Portland Hospital welcomes visitors to its Pregnancy Open Day for the first event of the year. The day provides an opportunity for parents-to-be and medical professionals to visit the UK’s largest private maternity unit.


25th – Take A Trip To The Zoo

ZSL London Zoo opens its new, interactive £5.7 million home for endangered Asiatic lions – a must-see for kids at the end of the month.



27th – Easter

It’s time for bunnies, chicks and an endless supply of chocolate. Make the weekend one to remember with egg hunts and Easter-themed crafts, or cosy up with the animals at Hackney City Farm.



2nd – Children’s Book Day

Get your little one involved in International Children’s Book Day by encouraging them to pick up a read. See page 36 for our top choices for babies.
