My story begins with the birth of my first child. Like a lot of Mummas, I was excited to become a Mum… I mean it is my birthright, right?
My transition into motherhood did not go smoothly.
After a traumatic birth in a very unsupportive hospital environment, I was left feeling lonely, empty and violated. In a time that should have been filled with all the feels, all I felt was ripped off. I felt stripped of the magical birth experience I wanted so much.
I felt like this one pivotal moment in my life led to a whole world of pain…
I developed anxiety which eventually affected me so much that I couldn’t manage the normal day to day things that most people would take for granted. I found myself counting down the hours in the day, and the weeks in the year and was barely keeping my head above water!
I didn’t feel like I could ever have more kids. I actually wondered how people went back for more!
And then I did….
A second baby girl, and after that, a boy. This third time around I had ALL THE FEELS.
From this moment, to say things were shaken up would be an understatement.
Even after all the progress I had made and the personal development I had been doing, I hit one of the lowest points in my life.
I knew I had to do something, that there were more shifts that needed to happen.
I had everything to be grateful for, yet I barely had the motivation to get out of bed in the morning… or the afternoon for that matter.
So I started putting one foot in front of the other, and being mindful about the steps I was taking in order to not only get my life back – and to create a new reality for myself.
The biggest change actually came from leaning into the pain, leaning into the discomfort, and giving myself the time and space I needed to heal. I have since learnt that when you stop pushing, magic happens. Everything started falling into place.
You see, we all have the power within us to heal. With the right support and right tools and resources we are able to change anything, to create the life we most deeply desire.
In this new found space I had created, and a trust in the universe that everything was going to be OK… life ebs and flows as it should.
I do not have ALL the answers, but I know where to go for help. I know the steps I need to take to get back ontop when life gets me down.
I am so excited to share all of my knowledge and I know that everything I have experienced in my bumpy ride into parenthood is for a greater purpose.
And I know that I can help mums who have lost their way gain the confidence they need to pursue their dreams beyond motherhood.
