Believe in Yourself – No Judgement Necessary!

Before becoming a mum, I had often heard about this thing called parental judgment which is often imposed on new Mums. I perhaps shrugged it off, not fully understanding. However, having now experienced such judgement, I now truly understand the impact it has. The scary thing is that this judgment does not only come from other mothers. I have experienced… Read more →

Live and Dream

I haven’t posted for a while… A lot has been going on in my world. I have an almost ten-month-old baby boy, I returned to full-time work three months ago, and so juggling motherhood and work have been a little tougher than I expected. As well, my father has continued to fight his battle against cancer, until last Sunday. So… Read more →

A Mother’s Day to Remember

It feels strange this year as Mother’s Day approaches and I will be celebrating my first seven months as a mum. For years now this was all I’ve ever wanted, and the significance of my journey leading up to this day.

You know I wrote a book about it?”… Read more →

The New Eve Fertility Method

Bridget is a strong advocate for women who have experienced the loss of miscarriage and stillbirth to channel the strength of their body and mind to conquer their infertility. Even more amazing, Bridget asked me to write the foreword for her new release. Bridget doesn’t give you a miracle… Read more →

Without the Rain there is no Rainbow

We never forget the storm, but it is the rainbow of hope that promises a new tomorrow.   This month is quite a significant month for me. It marks four years since we started our conception journey. Albeit I am appreciative, as many have travelled much longer, some are still on their journey.   I also turn forty this month,… Read more →

My Final Two Week Wait…

It feels unreal, but in just over two weeks (could even be less) I will finally get to meet my rainbow baby!   Through everything we have endured, and the obstacles we’ve faced, I now look down at my rounded belly and find myself almost feeling that this is some kind of dream. It seems so hard to fathom that… Read more →
