    Anxiety during Pregnancy

    Now we all know anxiety is a bag of s**t.. pregnancy anxiety is on another level. If you’ve suffered with it before you know what your dealing with, if it’s new to you, I feel for you. With having a miscarriage previous and anxiety for a few years on and off, I was kinda expecting to battle with it throughout pregnancy. I obviously had to come off diazepam and CBD oil while pregnant, and I was worried of what was to come, this is where breathing techniques became my new best friend. Don’t get me wrong they help no where near as much as popping a Valium or taking a…

  • Miscarriage & Pregancy Loss

It was December…

    From the one who was NEVER having kids!

    We all have that one friend who says she’s never having kids, hates being around them, loves alcohol far too much and can’t understand why anyone would ‘give up their life’ and independence to take care of another human being for at least 18 years! Yep that was me – I was that person. The older I was getting everyone around me was popping out kids, getting married, buying houses, and all I wanted to do was book my next flight ticket and see somewhere new. I’d been with my partner Gary over 2 years and when we met we had to have the kid/marriage convo, as he was 23…
