If you are due to give birth soon or have just welcomed your little joy into the world then I couldn’t be happier for you.
It’s the most special time in the world but can also be quite an emotional time full of ups and downs and so I thought I would write you and your family a letter ❤️
You will have heard the phrase ‘The Baby Blues’ by now am sure but I have always felt this is such a negative phrase.
I like to picture a bridge, a bridge that Mummies will go over ‘post’ birth.
Your body has gone through so many amazing things and that body has to return to normal.
Everyone will cope with this differently and this is where the bridge comes in!
Imagine a walk in the countryside with a whole heap of friends and family, you’re chatting away and come to a bridge…
Everyone needs to cross it to carry on the walk, some may see it as a bit of a challenge, some may hobble over it, some will run, some will not even know they have crossed it but if anyone on the walk was struggling you would hold their hand and help them over it.
It’s the same with having a baby.
Hopefully, these letters may explain things a bit more and make life a bit easier
