George Floyd is dead. We have all seen the video. It is brutal, it is upsetting and it is heartbreaking.

If I were black in America, I doubt I would feel comfortable ever letting my child leave the house without fearing for their life. … Continue reading It needs to STOP & it starts here

Finding out you’re pregnant again after suffering a loss is so overwhelming, it’s hard to describe. I had so many emotions: happy, scared, nervous, anxious – the list could go on. I wanted so much to feel the excitement that I knew I “should” feel and to some extent I did, but there were so many thoughts at the back of my mind. I could … Continue reading Twinning is Winning
How do you live with losing a baby? I wish I knew the answer to this impossible question. I don’t think that you learn to live WITH it but you can try to move through the pain.

Deciding we were going to try and have a third baby was a a colossal decision for us, we had a ridiculous amount of conversations where we debated every aspect of this choice before … Continue reading Third Time’s a Charm, right?
All new mums are entering into unknown murky waters when becoming a parent for the first time, nobody can prepare you for what’s to come once your child arrives. However, there were certain things that I feel I could have been better prepared for if people had been honest with me.

It’s not a lighthearted subject and it upsets me that this is something we need to approach as parents, but the importance of being a responsible parent … Continue reading The Stranger Danger Talk Makes Me Sick
There are so many women who inspire me on a regular basis – whether it’s a friend, a work colleague or even a Mum with three kids on the train doing the best she can not to lose her shit. I respect and look up to certain ladies for different reasons and take inspiration from my fellow females to be a better version of myself. … Continue reading To The Women Who Inspire Me
By WE I mean mums and by ALL I mean be a parent AND have a career. Any working mum will have pondered this thought many times and often doubted that she could. I am a mum with two children Max (6) and Isabelle (2) and I work. Being a mum, a wife, an employee – all while trying to maintain some degree of a … Continue reading Can We Have It All?
This is not the first time I have written about my struggles with anxiety. I have suffered from anxiety for most of my adult life in different forms and extremes. While I manage it well (I think) and keep it under control in my own ways (which I will come onto later) there are times when it takes hold of me and I feel like … Continue reading Living With Anxiety
