It's Mental Health Awareness Week and the focus this year is on kindness and it got me thinking. You see, I'm not very kind to myself, I can be down on myself, not tidying up enough, not finishing up my do to list, the kids aren't simulated enough, we're all still in pyjamas at 11am … Continue reading Being Kind to Myself
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
It's official, I'm back in work. It weird, but in a good way, it's nice to have time where I get to interact with other adults and the conversations don't revolve around Mr. Tumble or how many times Sigi has spat up on herself during the day. That being said, I'm feeling the mum guilt … Continue reading So, I’ve Gone Back to Work
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've spoken on here multiple times before about my mental health and my struggles, with my post natal anxiety after Frey was born, but what I haven't really talked about all the other things that cause me anxiety, make me feel worthless, or a bit of … Continue reading Me and My Mental Health.
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
I really wanted to write this blogpost while everything was still fresh on my memory. So I'm writing this with a 10 day old in my arms, she doesn't want to be put down and is rather content at the moment, and Frey already gone to bed. So I finally have enough free time to … Continue reading Sigi’s Birth Story: An Elective C-Section
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.
It's Maternal Mental Health Week this week, a week dedicated to raising awareness about the mental health of both pre and post natal mums. With this in mind I decided to post today, about my mental health and the journey I've gone on since Frey was born. Now I'll be honest I wasn't sure if … Continue reading Maternal Mental Health Week: My Story
