So you’ve just had a baby? There’s so much to think about now you have a little baby to look after. What about YOU? Your body has changed? Well of course it has... you have created and grown life! Things will go back to “normal” but it won’t happen over night. I say “normal” but that’s a discussion in itself. What is normal really? You are likely to experience a number of postnatal discomforts in the weeks after having your baby. Don’t hesitate to seek medical advice if you are ever concerned. That’s what they are there for! One of the many things that may not go straight back to normal is... how you look! Despite having lost the combined weight of the baby, the placenta and the amniotic fluid you will be heavier than you were before you became pregnant. Your uterus takes a while to shrink down so you may still look pregnant. It feels a bit like jelly because of the stretched skin and slack muscles. I remember feeling quite repulsed by the feeling of my tummy. It was so... empty! But seriously, all very normal. You will probably loose weight quite quickly in the first few days after the birth but then the weight losing will likely slow down. Again, very normal. Something I often say and is definitely worth remembering is that it takes 9 months to make a baby so allow yourself at least 9 months to get back into shape afterwards. You can help by eating a healthy and balanced diet and doing gentle postnatal exercise. Don’t push yourself though... you’ve just had a baby for goodness sake. Above all be kind to yourself. Allow your body to recover and take it easy.

Well? For someone who doesn’t particularly like swearing I agree with this so much. Don’t get me wrong I do swear at times, but my Mum would still row me if she heard me swear 😳 But this! This... is so true. When someone continuously upsets you, acts like a wolly, irritates you or generally just gets on your nerves... that wee internal voice saying “f*** off” really makes you feel better. In all seriousness... if there’s people in your life that make you feel like this don’t have them in your life any more. We are adults. As my Grandpa use to say “you’re all the woman you’re ever going to be” Don’t put up with it. I’m not saying go tell them to “F off” but internally do it. And stick by it. Don’t have people in your life that you don’t want in your life. Of course there’s people that are in your life you’d love to say this to verbally, but they are in your life because you have a connection together (such as an ex that you have a child together)... in that case have this post in your mind and just say it internally for that wee release... know that yes you have to see them now and again but don’t allow them to control your emotion and rage you any more. You’re stronger than them... show them that by being the bigger person and only saying “F off” internally.

Over the past few days I have been thinking a lot about my experience in Africa. This is me in 2011 volunteering in Malawi. This photograph was taken in the early hours of the morning once the sun had risen... following the birth of these beautiful twin babies. They arrived in unbelievable conditions, with very little light, in what would be in this country - a real emergency. Long story short... The mum to be had meconium (baby poo) all over her inner thigh when she arrived. It was so challenging to see what was going on as the lighting was so dull and it was the middle of the night. The Midwife/Nurse I was working along side was incredible but she was exhausted because she had been working for over 18 hours already. Anyways... baby was born and we then proceeded to assist the new Mum to birth her placenta. At that point we realised there was still another wee darling to come. I will NEVER forget the new Mums face when we explained she was having another baby. Where I was in Malawi was extremely rural and they didn’t have scanners to get a nice wee picture the way we do. We are so fortunate to have that available to us here in the UK. So she didn’t know she was having twins! After a few complications and a lot of calm empowerment, this new Mummy became a Mum of twins. I feel so privileged to have assisted this lady and so many women in Malawi in bringing their babies into the world. And extremely blessed that some were named after me. It’s lovely having a wee walk down memory lane now and again. And having a reminder if how fortunate we really are to have our NHS.
