Hi there! I’m so glad you found my little corner of the internet and I hope you can find some comfort, relief and positivity here.
I began this blog in Spring 2015 following my difficult journey into motherhood and subsequent recovery from Postnatal Depression, Anxiety & OCD. You’ll find tons of information here all about perinatal mental health, anxiety management techniques and being a loving, awesome parent in spite of our struggles. In addition, we extensively discuss emotional wellbeing & self-care for parents. For all my mental health content, start here.
If you would like to talk one-to-one please email firstname.lastname@example.org or send me a message via my Facebook page.
I personally recovered many years ago. My son is now ten years old and we went on to have a daughter too, who is coming up four. Eventually motherhood was everything I imagined it would be, and it will be for you too.
I don’t often post new content here any more but there is a lot of existing material that I’m sure you’ll find comforting and useful, plus I’m still available for a chat via the contact details above. You’re not alone.
I firmly believe in keeping a tight grip on your identity after becoming a parent and that we should all forget about being Perfect Mums and be Good Enough Mums instead.
If you’re looking for perfect Pinterest crafts you’re not likely to find them here but if you’re looking for honest observations, discussions and experience-sharing on every aspect of life with kids then you’re definitely in the right place.
Parenthood is a journey, not a destination, and I’m here to find the joy in it where I can. I hope you’ll join me!
