Beaux Pregnancy Diary: The Beaux Black Book

I've written this post to my 3 year-ago-old self...the Ashley who had just moved to London and was so frustrated at trying to make sense of everything that would later come together into this list. This is my doula list, my hair list, my grocer, my sheets-presser, and most importantly:

This is my incredibly personal list of London practitioners and healers that I myself use regularly and have spent three years searching for. My tribe of healers. I would give this list to my closest friends, and hope it is a resource for you as well, esp. during a time as cathartic and vulnerable as pregnancy.

I've also included my favourite london apps that I use and life hacks (like 10£ haircut night at Daniel Hersheshon!)

Hope these help!
