It’s been nearly a year since I last wrote. In that time I’ve had a little baby boy (who is now 9 months!) and as I have become a mother myself – creating my own version of ‘mother nurture’. I first started this blog when my mum was sick with lymphoma and I wanted to understand more about why that may be and – noticing many similarities between us – what I could do to ensure it didn’t happen to me too. Since her passing and the ever evolving circle of life with me becoming a mother just 9 months later, I seem to understand more and more everyday about how self care is so important but how the priority is not yourself when you first have a baby! It’s really hard to nurture yourself, it’s so primal to want to care for the baby you nurture. Everything becomes about that new child. I recently flew to America with my little man and was reminded on the plane about in the event of something happening that we are to put our own oxygen masks on first! Only then can we be of the utmost assistance to our loved ones. It seemed like a perfect reminder that I needed to get written down on here!
