I’m back after a rollercoaster of a few weeks.
Following emergency surgery to deliver my baby, we found ourselves in a specialist children’s hospital intensive care unit for around two weeks when my son was just 13-days-old. Add to that general newborn challenges of reflux, no sleep and breastfeeding difficulties, and there wasn’t much time for blogging or taking care of myself.
Oh, and did I mention, the Covid19 pandemic lockdown was enforced while we were in hospital, which added home-schooling a pre-teen, interrupted nap times and no external help from family or friends to our plate.
(There was also a stomach bug in the mix for around a week, which took me so long to recover from as I was waking every two hours to nurse my baby and not allowing my body the time it needed to rest and recover. It wasn’t pretty. I had to dig in deep during that time!)
So yeah; it’s been a tough old nine weeks since we last spoke, but I’m delighted to report that my son has now fully recovered, I’ve had the all clear from the doctor and we, as a family, have found our own way of navigating the Covid19 lockdown situation.
With these reassurances in mind, I’ve now started looking at my wants, needs and priorities as I strike a balance of being a mum and an evolved version of myself.
I’m starting by taking charge of my physical and mental wellbeing, as I look to be stronger and healthier than ever before. I’ll be sharing my journey here on the blog, on Instagram and Twitter in the hopes of inspiring others. I’d love for you to join me on my journey, so make sure you’re following and let me know what you think when a post resonates with you.
I hope you’re staying safe and well, wherever you are in the world.
