What advice do you give to new mums?
Be kind to yourself, you are doing you absolute best and that is enough. Nothing really prepares you for motherhood other than the experience itself, it's a whirlwind of emotions and experiences. Everyday you will experience highs and lows, it's not a time to compare you or your baby to others. Embrace the uncertainty and know that you will both grow and learn together. Cherish this time, it passes so quickly!
What is the most helpful advice you have ever received?
Trust your motherly instincts. First time round I questioned my decisions over and over, i doubted every decision I made which completely knocked my confidence. I quickly realised no one knows my baby quite like I do, Mum knows best, always remember that!
What is your favourite thing to do when you get a spare moment to yourself?
Great question! I like to clear my head, reset my mindset! Sometimes I'll take 5 minutes to stand in the garden and just breathe, being outdoors is my jam and finding 5 minutes of silence is just bliss when you have two tiny humans at home. If the kids are napping I try my best to switch off too, no phone, tv or answering emails, when life is so busy and full It's so important to just be in the moment even for a few minutes each day. It's also such a treat to listen to my own Spotify playlist, we've been listening to Disney soundtracks on repeat for 2 years, I'm so over it!
