Admitting pregnancy has been "hard" during lockdown, the expectant mother explained: "My apologies for the lack of posts recently, finding out we were expecting was just incredible, however being pregnant during this lockdown has been a little tricky at times, so I've been spending the last few months frantically trying to learn as much as possible online (thank you @pbbevents) and preparing for the baby's arrival.

"I'm really missing treating you all and was hoping to have at least a few weeks of relaxed lockdown rules after Christmas to see some of you before I go off on Maternity leave end of Feb, which I just don't see happening now, unfortunately."

Hayley added: "A huge thank you to everybody that booked appointments for January and purchased vouchers over Christmas, I'm so sorry I couldn't see you, hopefully I've contacted you all by now to discuss refunds and moving appointments to the summer but if you haven’t heard from me, please give me a shout!!!" She concluded: "Sending you all a lot of love and will see you very soon! Hayley xx."
