Hitting the Bottom
When you lose a baby no one tells you that the journey you are going to go on will never end.... You kind of expect to feel really bad for a few months, but then things will return to normal. Well, it has been almost three years since we said goodbye to our...

Eating away at me.....
In this blog, I have touched on the impact of loss on parenting. These last few months have been tough for me as Florence is learning to eat by herself. Cue mother in a state of anxiety every meal time. Heart racing. Panic striken. Reliving nightmares... Wh...

The pursuit of happiness...
