I have had this post half written in my drafts for a long time. I only now feel ready to finish it and publish it because I am 70% recovered. I don’t know if I will ever be 100% recovered from post-natal anxiety. I am unsure at which point I stop calling it post-natal anxiety and just call it anxiety. My boy is 3 now. The main reason I want to publish this is to help others. Although there is still not enough awareness out there about post-natal depression there is even less awareness surrounding post-natal anxiety. It is often… View Post

To my friends, my parents, my husband, my boy and the people that read my blog, I know that there is no need for this apology. I know that the special people in my life who were with me from day 1 of post-natal anxiety don’t need one because they are amazing. But I think they deserve one.

He was then shown to… View Post

So I have numerous blog posts about post-natal anxiety which I hope have been of use to some. I had the urge to talk about it last week so I filmed me talking about it. It’s not a light and bright vlog but it is from the heart and I hope it can help. There is something more personal about talking about this subject rather than writing it.
