The life changing experience known as ‘motherhood’ is nothing short of an emotional roller coaster.
As a first-time mum, I walked into the unknown and there was no turning back. My birthing plan went out the window (does it ever go according to plan?) There were times I felt like I was the only one, I lost hope and well … life changed dramatically after giving birth.
I started The Life After Birth Project in an attempt to help those on the roller coaster or ready to jump off!
‘Life After Birth is a project where mums can share their experience of life after giving birth’
I have spoken to women who sadly lost their babies after giving birth, women overcoming postnatal depression or just overwhelmed by the whole birthing experience.
I hope to spread courage and comfort in the stories shared.
Everyone has a story to tell and you never know who you are inspiring by telling yours.
Please feel free to submit your story!
HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR STORY
Questions To Think About:
- How did becoming a mum change you ?
- How were relationships effected ?
- How did you overcome obstacles ?
You don’t have be a blogger to participate or a new mum. I understand it takes a lot to be open and honest about this topic. To experience this project it asks you to reflect on your LIFE after BIRTH.
