Gita is continuing to do a really amazing job in raising ectopic awareness especially highlighting and enabling people to talk about ectopics in Sweden. Gita recently hosted an EPTea Party making everything from scratch and really did produce a very beautiful and tasty looking EPTea party. The afternoon was a great success as you can read below and see what drove Gita to host her EPTea party.
I hosted an EPTtea Party to raise awareness and funds for the EPT because the organisation means a lot to me. Having had 2 ectopic pregnancies myself, I contacted the Trust to become involved with the work they do and I am now an official volunteer. Ever since I had my ectopic pregnancies, spreading information and supporting others who have gone through the same thing has been important to me. I started a blog which has had over 30000 hits and I’ve received many emails where people thank me for highlighting this subject as it is not talked about at all here in Sweden.
Swedish clinics and hospitals do not provide ANY information regarding ectopic pregnancies when you get pregnant or otherwise. Which is a big reason to drive me to share my story and raise awareness. Here is a link to Gita’s English blog (Swedish one is more active but you can read her story via her UK blog)
The afternoon was a big success. We had great discussions and everyone thinks highly of the organisation! A woman from the local newspaper came with one of my friends and would like to do a story on me.
Gita used the recipe on the EPT t towel for the sugar cookies above and she has kindly shared her recipe for her chocolate balls as per the above photo.
100g butter (room temperature)
3tbsp cocoa powder
2-3tbsp cold coffe
Mix butter and sugar until creamy. Add the rest of the ingredients one by one. Make round balls of desired size. Chill. Melt chocolate to drizzle on top. Add sprinkles if desired
Thank you so much to Gita for all her hard work in creating such a great EPTea Party and for her ongoing passion to keep raising awareness and for being amazing in her role as a volunteer.
