Celebrate that magic line that brought your baby earth side.


For all the amazing mamas who belly birth their babies!
Thank goodness for modern medicine! It’s important to continue the work of changing the stigma around caesareans. The most important thing is to know our options when giving birth so we feel empowered, supported and in control. Understand what the likely sequel of interventions will be. Whether we have our baby naturally, with pain medications or with an emergency or elective c section, our baby is a miracle, they are safe and so are we. 📷 @spiritysol

 When you became a Mother, along with that squishy warm bundle, you also acquired a voice, not only for yourself but one for your child until they grow big enough for this world to sit down and listen. Never be afraid to stand up and be heard. You are your child's advocate.  By Lacey Owen

This is what it’s like to be a new mum

If you want to feel a little less alone in all the new mum thoughts you are experiencing on this journey I would have a read of this emotional and relatable piece of journal writing.
