I am a mother to a beautiful four year-old girl, a wife to an amazing husband. I also blog and write about all things mental health, lifestyle and parenting.
“It’s sad that it takes being diagnosed with a Mental Illness, to be told you need to look after your Well-being. I sat and thought. Did I really look after it before I was diagnosed!”
“Life is precious and even though we want to live it to the fullest, we must look after ourselves, whether we suffer with an illness or not.”
My story, well where do I start. I guess you will read most of it via my blog. Short version, I suffered a traumatic birth and was diagnosed with, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Postnatal Depression (PND)
My intent is to raise awareness for others like me. I share the ups and downs of being a parent in the hope, new parents can be better prepared along the way. I always try to be as open and honest as I can, so others can relate. My Birth Experience
You learn so much from interacting with charities and communities that support people with a mental illness. I have sat and thought about how the things people have said have resonated with me.
It helps me, that’s why I took to blogging. I worked with Pandas Foundation a perinatal mental illness charity for 3 years managing their social media and fundraising.
I am actually writing a book at the moment. Yay! Hope you find my content useful.
