Starting a family is an experience like no other, and when your parenting journey begins with not just one new bundle of joy, but twins, or in my case, three and, for others, even more, coming along at the same time, it’s a whole other experience. While having children close together in age is not unusual, parents of multiples (twins, triplets or more) face a whole new dynamic, with different pre and postnatal support required...

Electric vehicle production and purchasing are surging worldwide, and this isn’t slowing down anytime soon. The Middle East’s more affluent GCC countries are bringing the region closer to Western market trends. In the UAE, which is the second Middle Eastern nation to host the United Nations Climate Change Conference, also known as COP 28, in 2023, the number of electric cars in Dubai alone increased by over 7,000 percent from 2015 to 2022. Rising petrol...

It was on the second episode of The Real Housewives of Dubai that star Sara Al Madani said she was trying to raise her son to be free from the Arab toxic masculinity she’s experienced. “I believe that my son is not going to be raised like that,” He’s gonna be raised to show his emotions to be vulnerable. And being a man does not mean all these things, you are a human being and that’s...

As a yoga teacher, I have seen all sorts of things over the years. What seems like common sense to some is anathema to others and there are many things that are not so obvious if you’re used to going to group exercise classes. The philosophy behind the practice teaches us to live a better life outside the studio, so cultivating these qualities in class will help us way beyond our physical practice or asana. ...

In recent years we have been watching the arts and culture sector in the UAE froth with growth, with the state pouring much strategic effort into its development. Interestingly, most of the major art institutions and initiatives flowering across the country are being spearheaded by women, such as Antonia Carver, former Art Dubai director and current head of Art Jameel, Sheikha Hoor Al Qasimi, president and director of the Sharjah Art Foundation, Sheikha Lateefa bint Maktoum,...

The room was so cool and quiet and the bed so comfortable that I overslept, waking with only 10 minutes to throw on my yoga clothes, grab a handful of berries, a bottle of water and head down to the open-air studio by the beach. I didn’t even think about skipping the morning yoga class, despite having to rush there. Somehow, after a lifetime of trying, there was just no way I was going to miss...

A heroine is defined as “a woman admired for her courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities”. But what comes to your mind as you read “courage and outstanding achievements?” Is it a woman sitting at the table in a boardroom? Or is a woman who is sitting at the dinner table with her children and her family?  If we are all honest with ourselves, our first thoughts when we hear ‘outstanding achievements’ are college degrees,...

The region’s Fast Moving Consumer Goods industry is still somewhat suffering and affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, as prices of raw materials have increased along with price inflation, a major reason why we need to be more focused than ever on food security and sustainability. Most research studies have also pointed out that the major contributors to food security in the Middle East are related to climate, population growth, and overall dependence on importation.  When...

Natasha D’souza has one piece of advice for any woman who believes she may have PCOS, aka Polycystic ovary syndrome. “Get a good doctor that treats the causes,” she says, “and not just the symptoms”. PCOS is a hormonal disorder common among women of reproductive age that is often undiagnosed, so women have a hard time getting the care and support that they need. According to the recent Apple Women’s Healthy Study, about 12 percent...

Sara Al Madani has been through a lot in her life, but she really took it on the chin when she signed up to be the only Emirati on the first edition of the Bravo reality television series The Real Housewives of Dubai (RHOD), which screens in the UAE on OSN+. But only a few episodes in, the 36-year-old, twice-divorced single mom from Ajman has set herself apart, not only as a mediator between the...

It’s not until I am lying on my right side, a long flaming candle sticking out of my ear, wincing from a sharp, needle-like pain, that I regret my spur-of-the-moment decision to try ear candling. Stay with me. Years ago, I used to visit regularly a woman who did facial reflexology out of her villa in Abu Dhabi. I remember leaving those sessions floating and serene, and after she moved back home, I was never...
