Take Care

Motherhood is quite an experience, better than I could have ever imagined with more challenges than I can honestly say I’ve truly faced before. It is far too easy to forget about the importance of taking care of ones-self when you’re meant to be worrying about your baby and your house and you career (and a puppy for some too) It sounds obvious, but I feel like I’m the first thing that gets forgotten when the madness is all piling up. My life is so different now, the pace of it is altered, the priorities are new and my little man has captured my heart. Sadly there is no motherhood manual, but I will share with you how I learned to balance my mayhem. Once I managed that, I loved every minute, even the screamy, barfy, pooey, food-throwing, phone-smashing, no sleeping bits.

The transition to a London working mum

Never in my wildest dreams had I ever imagined having a baby in London, let along on the other side of the world from my family. Yet this all changed when I met my future husband and several years later we were blessed with a beautiful baby boy. Having my first baby in London whilst working in the tech scene hasn’t always been cute dimples, babyccino dates and a walk in the park with the stroller, but overall it’s given me a fresh perspective on so many things - work, time management, friends, and life in general. I thought I would share with you my journey into motherhood, from pregnancy battles, to some of my biggest fears, with some (hopefully) sound advice along the way.
