A little more self care, a little less grief, please

A little more self care, a little less grief, please

I am really big on self care. The reasons for it seem obvious. It benefits our heart and souls, gives us new energy, a break away from the daily grind and is a time where it is just about us. Day trip to the spa? Don’t mind if I do! A little get away over the weekend? Sign me up! Self care is exactly that and more. I also find self care is easier said than done. We all know…

What I learned from My Early Pregnancy loss

What I learned from My Early Pregnancy loss

I got the chance to write a guest blog for Her Story – a fantastic blog run by Julia Nusbaum. Her ┬ástory encourages women to tell their story. But not only that – Her Story also publishes them on their website. This June, Her Story focuses on pregnancy loss which I think is fantastic. Julia invited me to write down my pregnancy loss story.

Those words that still haunt me

Those words that still haunt me

‘It wasn’t the first and it won’t be the last’. There, said just like that. These words were said by a colleague who had asked my husband if I was ‘still upset’ about my miscarriage, six months after we lost our baby. My husband had answered yes to the question as indeed, I was still struggling and upset. So, therefore, these words were offered as a blunt way for me to ‘get on with it’.
