WeTwo is a brand new haircare range for pregnancy and beyond, formulated and designed by hairdresser Kelly Simpkin-Clarke, alongside the Portland Hospital’s gynaecologist Claire Mellon.
As a professional hairdresser with 15 years’ experience and a mother of two, Kelly identified the need for a hair care range for mums-to-be – a range that could support the hormonal imbalance and ongoing changes that women go through during and post-pregnancy, but which is also kind to the body.
Using her credentials and love of essential oils, Kelly spent three years working closely with industry experts to create a range that is completely safe for use during pregnancy and breastfeeding. The range is free from parabens, silicone, phalates and SLS, with more than 90% natural ingredients, which are all vegan friendly.
The result is a fabulous capsule haircare range which is a three-step programme and comprises shampoo and conditioner: NOURISH for use during pregnancy, REBUILD for post-partum and BEYOND as a mother’s journey continues through womanhood.
NOURISH for pregnancy
REBUILD for post-partum
BEYOND for motherhood

If you have a child who is struggling academically at school, life can be very tough. Textbooks and resources are geared to fluent readers, so what happens if your child is not quite there with reading skills, is dyslexic or a slow processor?
Oaka Books can help! Set up when co-founder Bambi Gardiner’s daughter was diagnosed as severely dyslexic, she created highly visual resources to help her daughter. When her results shot up from E, F and U grades to As and Bs, Bambi turned to subject specialists and SEN teachers to produce a range of products to help other struggling children.
Each topic pack is fully illustrated, colourful and engaging. Information is broken down into bite size chunks and each pack includes 3 different learning strategies: reading, writing and memory recall.
All Oaka products are linked to the national curriculum and there are packs and games for KS1, KS2, KS3 and KS4/GCSE.

BACK TO YOU: The Ultimate Recovery Program After Pregnancy.
Co-authored by the CEO of The Wonder Weeks Xaviera Plooij and acclaimed personal trainer and physical therapist Laurens Mischner, Back To You features interviews with leading doctors, lactation consultants, therapists and other experts.
Recovering from childbirth is both a physical and non-physical process with no expiration date. From hormones and muscles to mind and spirit, every aspect of a woman’s body is affected by pregnancy, and so Back To You presents a holistic programme of recovery that includes—but goes well beyond—exercise. This is not a workout book, and it’s important to note that losing weight is not the end goal of this programme; instead, it is a side-effect of the healthy lifestyle the programme promotes.
