Motherhood and Losing My Sense of Self – just for a little while

I’ve not written about this side of the motherhood journey for me before, but I have spoken about it and am not scared to admit what I’m about to write about, as I realise lots of other mothers out there feel and go through exactly the same thing. The beauty of us being so connected in the world, by social media and the internet, is now, people are talking about it more and sharing their true feelings and hopefully people are suffering in silence less. What am I talking about? Well, this crazy journey called motherhood and losing my sense of self…

Finding a New Confidence in My Body after Pregnancy

Ok so I don’t often go “deep” on here, but occasionally I have a bit of a personal revelation and I feel I should share it in case it resonates with even one other person out there in the world.

I didn’t think anyone except us would be interested and the whole insta-mum thing, wasn’t really a thing, and 2. I wasn’t sure how much I wanted to share, it was our experience, we didn’t know what was ahead of us and I didn’t want to post something I’d regret further down the line. But, as Flo got older, she started to photo-bomb my insta-stories and enjoyed being in front of the camera and I was more confident in myself as a mum and a person – so it felt more natural to share that with the world. I have also grown a network of friends in “real-life”, insta-life and through blogging and I realise we all support each other with our content and there are lots of people out there that are new parents or on their road to it and need support and find comfort in hearing others’ experiences and how it really is…
