I Love My Mummy Tummy!

As Mother’s we’re always on our game when it comes for preparing for a wide range of surprises (both good and bad), we have eyes in the back of our head and we know better than most that we must always expect the unexpected. Well today, the unexpected happened and it took me a little […]

Learning To Live With PND

One of the most difficult things I had to deal with when we announced our pregnancy was doubt. That doubt didn’t come from myself, it actually came from other people and it was written on their faces as clear as day whenever my state of mind was brought up be that by Doctors, Midwives or […]

Myself Against My Mind (Part One) – The Anxiety

I have struggled with my mental health, well, officially speaking anyway, since way back in two thousand and eleven.
