3.0 out of 5 stars Good workout, too bad about the objectification, 23 Aug. 2013
This review is from: Roller Derby Workout DVD (Misc.)
This is a good workout, quite tough and works all areas. No complaints there. My issues involve the objectification of the women in the DVD. It's like softcore porn, the outfits, the music, the location. Bleh. It's also not representative of roller derby in the slightest and just plays into stereotypes that we are trying so hard to get past. I'd love to see a workout like this with girls of all shapes and sizes that typically make up a team doing the exercises. This DVD makes it look like only tall, leggy, Barbie types are allowed to play. That aside though, it's a decent work out that you will definitely feel quickly!

5.0 out of 5 stars This book has revolutionised my kitchen!, 14 Aug. 2013
Amazing book, simply amazing. It's idiot proof. People ask which bakery I got my bread at and I just laugh. Have tried brioche, white, whole wheat, rye, pizza, ciabatta, naan, pittas and so on. Never once had a problem. I do prefer the American version however, that used cup measures, it's really a no-brainer, no weighing and measuring at all! I give this book to everyone and everyone is equally amazed. Who knew incredible bread could be so easy!? Highly recommended!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource for mothers and lactation professionals, 10 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This should be required reading for all lactation professionals and LLL leaders. Any mother who has struggled with low supply should also have a copy of this on their shelves. As someone who suffers from Primary Lactation Failure due to Insufficient Glandular Tissue (IGT) I found this book an absolute treasure. From information on various galactagogues, both herbal and medical to phsyical and mental practices that might help with supply; this book has it all.

Read it from the beginning, you may think you know how breastfeeding works, but reading it from the beginning allows you to tie in the various suggestions and solutions later on. This covers virtually all legitimate low supply problems and gives evidenced based suggestions and guides on how to fix them. People like myself with IGT will never be cured, but there are plenty of ideas in this book that allow us to maximise the little milk we do produce.

All breastfeeding support groups should have a copy of this in their library. For people with physiological disbilities it is incredibly frustrating to hear the usual low supply solutions suggested as if they have a fixable problem.

The book addresses so many issues including tongue tie and other milk transfer issues. Cannot recommend it enough!
