Quick disclaimer, this isn't my usual sort of post but April is C-section Awareness Month and I've been wanting to write this for a while. So I figured it was the right time to do it. There's a huge stigma attached to having a caesarean section. I didn't realise how bad this stigma was until … Continue reading Stigma Surrounding C-Sections: AKA What Not to Say
Sigi is almost 6 months old (how has that happened?!), Which means I'm also nearly six months postpartum so I thought I would do a bit of an update about how I'm doing. Physically, my C-section scar has healed very nicely. I do get the occasional twinges, especially if I've had to walk a long … Continue reading My (Almost) 6 Months Post C-Section Update.
I'm officially 6 weeks post c-section and birth, so I thought I would do a quick update all about how I'm handling the healing process this time round. I don't know if it's because it was an elective caesarean or because it was the second time round but I found the healing process physically far … Continue reading 6 Week Post C-Section Update

As there were items that I … Continue reading What’s in My Hospital Bag.
When I was pregnant with Frey I watched about 20 YouTube videos and read multiple blogs all about hospital bags for both baby and mummy. So I thought I would do a 'What's in My Baby's Hospital Bag' this time round as the blogposts that I read when I was pregnant with Frey really helped … Continue reading What’s in My Baby’s Hospital Bag.
When I first found I was pregnant our second baby, my first thought "Oh my god, I'm pregnant, yay". My second thought was, "oh sh*t I'm going to have give birth again". I was worried and scared, the first time round hadn't gone to plan at all and my mental health had taken a beating … Continue reading C-Section Awareness Month: Birth Plan for the Second Baby.
April is C-section awareness month, a month dedicated to raising awareness and educating people on cesareans and risks and recovery that goes along with the major surgery. With all this in mind, I decided to do a series of posts all about c-sections and my experience, starting with Frey's birth story and the aftermath. As … Continue reading C-section Awareness Month: Frey’s Birth Story
