Sometimes it's not always perfect, and that's ok

Let’s talk about it … sometimes it’s just not always perfect.

 Navigating pregnancy and the changes that it brings both physically and emotionally can sometimes be an amazing experience and sometimes can be a little bit overwhelming.

Don’t be too hard on yourself. Many of us are hard-working, self-driven people who always feel in control of our destinies. Pregnancy, birth and parenting are not like that (for mere mortals, at least). It’s normal to feel exhausted and unable to exercise in the first trimester. It’s normal to feel exhausted, hot and swollen in the third trimester. Births may not always go entirely according to plan and if they don’t, it’s not your fault. Learning to breastfeed is never easy and there is no such thing as a perfect parent.

So….. give yourself a break!! That basketful of unfolded laundry in the middle of your living room can wait (if you know what I mean).

Myself and my team are here to support you from pre-conception, through to birth and beyond. If you want to talk, please reach out to the rooms.
