Dear Duana Sadly The Name Therapist is not published here in Australia so I needed to be way more organised than I was when it came to ordering a copy!

Hi Duana My partner and I are adopting a puppy - he is a black Labrador Retriever, and expected to be a chunky guy, given his lineage. To tell you a little about ourselves - we live in England, met in Cambridge, and we have 14 year old a dog (also a black lab) called Lucca. We have been oscillating between so many names! Options floated so far have been Charlie (after Darwin - we met at Darwin College), Maxwell (after James Maxwell - nerds), Badger (because, cute!), Baker, Finley (we would call him Finn), and Louis (as a tribute to the old guy. Full Article

Hey Hayley! I have some questions for you regarding fitness during pregnancy.  I had my first babe a couple years ago after a long struggle with infertility.  When we found out we were finally expecting, the medical professionals around us suggested I stop my current fitness routine until I was at least 16 weeks, just to make sure I was being as safe as possible (there were no health concerns with me or babe, more just that we’ve waited so long, and the first 3 months can be the most common for miscarriage). Full Article

I was on vacation last week in Newfoundland and it's safe to say I was blissing right the hell out, eating up all the cod a human can and submerging myself in the awe of nature.  But ok, ok, ok, the other day we were on this boat checking out the fiords of Gros Morne and when I went to go take a leak I saw this picture: ... Full Article

Hi Duana, My 3rd baby (a boy) is due in a couple of weeks towards the end of June and I didn't want to miss my chance to write in. #1 (Graham) and #2 (Harriet) are napping and I thought aha! Now I will sit and write to Duana! I loved your book; it came out a few weeks after #2 was born and so I reread it again ahead of #3. Full Article

What is it? In-home “hydration therapy” for hangovers, jet lag, et cetera. It’s very popular at music festivals. What does it do? Instant hydration in the privacy of your own home, office, or Burning Man encampment, for those times when drinking water just isn’t fancy enough. Full Article
