How could I not post this? Motherhood is no longer as simple as “keep them alive". Rather expectations seem to be infinite and we all succumb to feeling the pressure. .
Should we accept this as modern parenting and just what we should be aiming for? We will becone better people for it? Well our children become better people? .

This is the reality of a mother struggling. Raw, emotional and intimate we love that @expatting.pom shared how she was feeling. .
Its so easy to only show our instalives but sometimes we need to lift the veil and share our pain.
.
One day at a time is the mantra I lived by for 2 years and still I try and only plan 1 or 2 days in advance. You are not expected to be everything so don't put that expectation on yourself. .
Superwoman is the instalife. Lift the veil.

This is a picture of a happy family. Yet if you scratch beneath the surface you will see the journey they have undergone. Through pain, loss, perserverence and finally joy, to be together. Post natal depression robs parents of the joy of their child, often even without their knowledge. .
I love this photo because it shows you can survive. You can reconnect and you can feel the joy.

"Lots of people are familiar with the terms "baby blues" and "postpartum depression," but did you know that postpartum emotional symptoms can exhibit as anger or rage, numbness, anxiety, or even have physical representations such as flu-like symptoms? •

The more we talk openly about the many faces of postpartum emotions, the more easily it will be for new mamas to heal.•

My theory on postpartum depression and anxiety, etc, is that as a society we don't support new moms as much as we have during our evolutionary past. Historically, women didn't have to leave their bed postpartum because their village brought them food and cared for their older children and allowed them to focus on healing and bonding with their new baby. •

Now, women are living away from their families and are often expected to rush back into society and go back to work or go back to keeping up with housework and running errands soon after birth. In cultures that have preserved the sanctity of the postpartum resting and bonding period, there are less instances of postpartum depression and anxiety.•

Another great way to balance postpartum emotions is by consuming the placenta! I personally had my placenta dehydrated and encapsulated so I just popped a couple placenta pills when I was emotional during my postpartum and in 20-30 minutes felt so much more balanced and happy. Other women choose to freeze their placenta and then blend it in smoothies, and there are also women who cook the placenta and eat it that way! It may sound weird but don't knock it til you try it because my placenta pills were seriously magic. ✨•

And if you are in your postpartum period and are having alarming or dangerous thoughts about harming yourself or your baby, realize that this is a common occurrence and reach out for help! Talk to a friend, a mom, a stranger like me, or a professional about what you're feeling. You don't have to shoulder this experience and those thoughts alone! 👭 "

Sleep can become problematic for children once they go to school. Their brains are highly active all day, learning, socialising and playing, it can be hard for them to learn how to switch off ready for a good night's sleep. Give them a little help with our Sleep Oil.

"Trying to get Ady to sleep is becoming quite a mission. Giving this sleep oil by honestly store a go, it smells divine and unlike other sleep/ relax oils it's not overpowering. Definitely helped relax my anxiety too."

Did you know that whilst lavender is very good at helping you relax we actually DON'T use it in our sleep oil? .
Why? Well having expert knowledge of essential oils means we know better oils that work more effectively to bring on sleep when sleep seems so hard to come by. .
That's one of the Honestly differences. We research 🔬 the best choices for your family 👪. .
We know what it's like to not have enough sleep. We don't want you to be us 😉!

Today has been a tough day. Pushing limits, exploring boundaries and having to understand those feelings when we are told "no".
.
Bringing up your child can feel like bringing up yourself. You find yourself saying things your parents said to you (the horror) and whilst we are teaching this little human how to manage the world I feel like I'm learning all over again too.
.
My boundaries are tough places and my limits are not large. I lose my patience, I shout and then I try to remember that these days are few so while 'letting it go' is not an option I will try and breathe more tomorrow.

Why do public holidays never seem like holidays anymore? Oh yes, you now have to entertain a small person outside of your regular schedule. .
I remember when a day off was just that a day off, not these days. There are no days off from motherhood, #newfoundrespect.
.
We can't provide 24hr cover for got but at least you can make sure you get a good night's sleep too. Our sleep oil will help your small people fall asleep naturally and stay asleep longer. Meaning more sleep for you. #happydance 💃
