With all the wonderful celebrations already underway for our latest member of the royal family what I find most enjoyable is acknowledging it’s a new life…
A new life has been born and it is also a new life for Will & Kate as they become parents for the first time; there is nothing quite like it in my experience. Whilst having children definitely brings changes, I believe the great changes far outweigh the less favourable ones (like lack of sleep!)
Having a new life to look after, to nurture and love is a beautiful journey of self-discovery (it is in these moments you really get to find out how patient you are… or are not!) and bonding. I know that it is not all a bed of roses by any means and there are plenty of parents who have tough times adjusting to parenthood but for me, it was a positive life changer; understanding responsibility, unconditional love and giving of self unquestioningly. 26 years on my son has two very firm legs of his own to stand on but I look back with fondness and joy.
I wish Will & Kate the very best and sincerely hope they get to enjoy this new life without all the pressure of the press – to just be able to be new parents…

A catalyst for change, Yvonne Bignall is a breath of fresh air in the extraordinary way she helps women 50+ to reconnect with life & their innate power through radical self-care, guilt-free!
She supports, encourages, and inspires women to prioritise their health, one bitesize action at a time. Her work is challenging as it navigates through difficult conversations, listening & observing how women’s health issues have been:
❊ Under-resourced &
❊ Swept under the carpet
She helps women to recognise & unpack old scripts that still (sadly enough) tell them that their value derives from their level of caregiving of others, their output. The truth is it is the input, the ability to resource self, which provides women with the energy required to realise their true potential.
Along with her team, she explores the thoughts, behaviour & habits, often born out of guilt, gender expectations, and reinforced narratives, with curiosity (not judgment), discarding the unhelpful, whilst reclaiming innate power through the creation of new patterns, restoring a sense of self, outside of societal expectations. In her opinion, this allows women to:
✔ Develop an elevated level of self-awareness
✔ Build / rebuild their confidence & self-belief
✔ Value all of who they are and invest time in who they want to be at their best
A self-care warrior, an encourager & inspirer, Yvonne is today an award-winning Women’s Health Advocate, Published Author, and an International Presenter. She is also a Radio Show Host and a Podcaster.
Yvonne is focused on building a community of women, www.PermissionToThrive.online, who are ready to reclaim their right to self-care, guilt-free, and who prioritise their health without apology, role-modeling behaviour & habits that inform generations to come of their true value.
She also advocates for self-care over burnout in the workplace, delivering practical webinars in the corporate space. In her own words, “It is time for employees to prioritise their wellbeing. How will they deliver their best work without it?”
One of her favourite quotes comes from Eleanor Brown, ‘Rest and self-care are so important. When you take time to replenish your spirit, it allows you to serve others from the overflow. You cannot serve from an empty vessel’
