#ad Remember a while back I shared that I got some new glasses from Specsavers? Well here they are. I’ve honestly never had such great service. Both David and I popped in for an eye test and picked out some new specs. They were even considerate enough to shift our appointments around so we didn’t have to make two trips for collection. If you see me these days I’ve got these on pretty much everyday because quite frankly they look great! For a helpful friendly service book an appointment via the link in my bio. Definitely glad we went to @specsavers. #LoveGlasses

I remember when I was pregnant with @eden.amp even when he was born, I kept saying I can’t believe I’m going to be someone’s mum, number 2 in the making and I’m STILL saying the same thing 😂 ⁣

#ad I’m quite open here about how not having my mum around has made me feel very vulnerable in many ways – including being a parent.
Research by @WaterWipes found that 62% of British parents feel like they’re failing during their first year, and that 47% of UK mums don’t talk about their parenting struggles for fear of being judged. While I was eager to start a family, I went from losing my mum to being married and pregnant in the space of three months and not having her around has been tough in so many ways. I have a husband who will happily take over while I disappear into the room, reassure me and stay up with me when I’ve have some sort of night trauma, which started when I lost my mum. I know someone is probably thinking well you’re both parents and what’s your point, he’s MEANT to do all this. There are many days I wonder, am I doing enough for our son? Am I teaching him all the things I should be? Is he where he should be? And many more questions. Then you have people ask questions that implies they’re not too sure about your parenting and you’re not doing a number of things right.

However I’m so thankful I’m able to do this parenting job with someone who constantly reassures us that we’re raising a smart and happy boy in a loving home. I think it’s important to share our honest experience, because we’re not perfect but we do our best. This is why I’ve teamed up with WaterWipes, its new #ThisIsParenthood project aims to normalise more open, honest conversations around the highs and lows of parenthood and inspire self-belief in parents worldwide. The project consists of a documentary, short films and a photography series made in partnership with mums, dads and BAFTA nominated director Lucy Cohen. Starting a conversation about this it’s like a release for me, you just never know who you’re helping!

Who needs exercise when you have a toddler. The bump and I have been doing A LOT of rolling around with big brother @eden.amp, it’s tiring stuff 😓. How do you keep up with your kids? ⁣

This morning I’m feeling refreshed. I had a lovely morning yesterday at the @b._by_superdrug event #MakingOverMotherhood for #MaternalMentalHealthAwareness
The lovely panel touched on some really important topics. ⁣
So much was said but one thing I wanted to highlight is that’s IT’S OK TO NOT BE OK!⁣
Let’s be honest, behind these squares a lot of us are a mess. You have days where your kids are driving you up the wall, your partner just doesn’t get it and you generally want to throw everyone, friends and family included in the bin. ⁣
At the end of the panel a few of us continued the conversation amongst ourselves as black women. We discussed that in many cultures there’s no such thing as finding motherhood hard “you’re not the only one that has kids” “what is depression” “don’t speak negatively” ⁣
Every mother has their own struggles, even the strongest of us, despite the fact they seem to just “get on with it”, while really it’s just suffering in silence. The lovely @lobellaloves_jo said ask the mums around you if they’re ok, ask them again and ask them again, it’s so important. Yesterday I think I shared more with those mums in 10 minutes than I have simply because they wanted to know. Let’s create an environment where Mother’s can feel safe to express their struggles, especially in the black community. ⁣
Thank you to the lovely panel @gem_loum @lobellaloves_jo @mother_ofall_adventures @shakira.akabusi @mother_of_daughters and my mama @the_imperfect_motha for sharing such heartfelt personal experiences you were all amazing. ⁣ ⁣

I’ve been reading so many of your amazing stories for #CesareanAwarenessMonth so here’s mine.
I’d planned to have a water birth....that didn’t happen lol. 7:30pm on 28th Nov I had my first contraction. I didn’t feel the need to go to the hospital till about 2am as i’d managed at home with various coping mechanisms. A 6 min drive away and what felt like an hours walk down the corridor we arrived. 3cm dilated I went into a ward and had some pethidine which helped me sleep between contractions. As the pethidine wore off my husband went to ask for more but was told to have bath. Walking to the bathroom a midwife wanted me to be checked again as it seemed like my contractions were getting closer. It was decided I couldn’t have a water birth & needed to be monitored as the baby was still higher than he should be. Turned out with every contraction I was having the his heart rate was dropping quite drastically. I was ticking along on gas & air 😂 while poor David was fully aware of the problem as he could actually see the monitor. A particular midwife was not happy with what she was seeing & insisted they move fast upon breaking my waters they noticed had done a poo at that point they decided he had to come out ASAP.
I had no idea the amount of amazing individuals in theatre to make this possible I’m sure there were about 10, after all it is a major surgery and we can take this for granted. There was music, all the medics were making jokes they really made it a lovely experience. Recovery is not great but you get on with it. I’d always said I’m ok with however the baby needs to come out as long as we’re ok. Most women don’t have a perfect birth story so KEEP AN OPEN MIND. ⁣⁣

#ad I remember going through so many nappies when Eden was a newborn and we’re about to do it all over again, up to 12 nappies a day that’s 84 week!! This @tommeetippeeuk Twist & Click nappy disposal system is the only bin that individually wraps each nappy for the ultimate odur block, it holds up to 30 nappies & is 100 x more effective than nappy sacks and to go with your style it comes in 4 different colours!
With another one on the way this is a welcome addition to the house. #ParentOn #getbabyready
