I decided to cut out alcohol to help my anxiety about 4 months ago. Since then we have had Christmas, I have had a couple of evenings out and have had to say to people that I’m not drinking. I’m a 32 year old mum so you can imagine the look I get straight away! You can see peoples minds going into overdrive and their pregnancy sensors going mad. Nope, I can confirm I am very very very not pregnant. So what made me give up my Saturday night glass of wine? Anxiety made me do it. I started to see… View Post

This isn’t my normal type of post. I keep my ranting to myself because frankly I’m sweary and not very pretty when I do it but a couple of things have happened this week that have spurred me on to write this post.

There was good food, good company and although admittedly I was flagging by 10pm I really… View Post

I have received so many lovely messages saying how reading about my experiences helps them so I wanted to open it all up a bit more and include some very inspiring ladies baby loss journeys today. The charity Tommy’s states that ‘1 in 4 women will experience a miscarriage in their lifetime’ which is a huge statistic yet we still aren’t talking about it as much as we could. So… View Post

I did an Instagram story a couple of days about not being scared of a baby loss mummy and it really seemed to strike a cord with a lot of people. Not only with parents who had lost their babies but also with friends of families who had lost too. It seems a silly thing to say, why would you be scared of a lady who had lost a baby? But it is one of those subjects, one of those taboo subjects. We are getting better at talking about it. Story lines in TV programmes have helped and wonderful online… View Post
