Looking back on the past seven months, I’ve had to face some truths about myself. In more ways than one I am extremely blessed. Lucky. Fortunate. The human body is such a miracle and the changes that a woman’s body instinctively makes to support new life is nothing short of incredible. So I confess. I […]
For me, the journey to motherhood has been exciting, rewarding, stressful, fun, and downright hard work. My whole life seems to centre around this tiny person that captures my every thought and my entire heart. It’s hard to describe what pregnancy feels like for a first-time-mom.
