One of my main roles as a parent is to help my children develop emotional intelligence. Over the next few months, I will be working with Skylark Learning and their My First Emotions Box. This fabulous developmental tool will help me teach my children about emotions and how they can learn to control them. These are my first impressions about My First Emotions.

New Post:

Yesterday, was #InternationalDayOfTheMidwife. And in celebration of the amazing work midwives do 24/7, I have written a thank you letter to Ruth, my Community Midwife during my pregnancy with Little Mister H. I can honestly say that I do not think I would have survived the nine months without her care and support. #thankyoumidwife

"As parents, we’ll happily prioritise teaching our children to spell the word sad before we teach them how to handle feeling sad. Yet, if you want your child to be happy, content, fulfilled and a valued member of society who is able to meet their full potential then they need to be emotionally intelligent."

Trigger warning: baby loss

Without a doubt, one of the hardest things that I've ever had to experience was going through the recurrent miscarriage. I don't honestly think I will ever fully recover from losing our four babies. But life moves on and you move on with it. So I had to learn how to move on after a miscarriage.

I've rewritten this post (it was originally written a month after our fourth miscarriage) with all the wisdom that I've gained from putting myself back together after the baby loss. I hope that it helps someone else who is trying to move on after a miscarriage.

If you've experienced baby loss yourself, or if you know someone who has then please share this. You don't know who it will reach. Or who needs to read it today.

Thank you.

In light of the recent research on the effectiveness of antidepressants, I'm sharing my story of taking antidepressants for most of my adult life.

TRIGGER WARNING: this post mentions anxiety, depression, attempted suicide, self-harm and antidepressants. If you have personal experience of any of these topics then you may find it upsetting.
