Hi my loves. I hope you all didn’t miss me too much. Yes, I have been away for a while.
Since my last post, I gave birth to a beautiful and healthy baby girl via c-section. I took an 8 week maternity leave from work and a bit of a break from this blog as well, to take care of my bundle of joy. While pregnant, I thought I’d be able to write several blog posts while on maternity leave. I was wrong. While I did have some time to draft posts up, I was in such awe with my daughter that I just wanted to stare at her and spend lots of quality time with her before going back to work. When I wasn’t doing that, I was trying to get rest.
But now I’m back. I hope you don’t mind but I plan to share my birth story, new-mom lessons, mommy/baby must haves, etc. I’m firm believer of sharing your birth story. Especially if positive, which mine was. Sharing stories empowers mothers-to-be and helps them feel secure and safe about the labor and delivery process. It really is an amazing thing.
I hope you are all well and hope you have a great weekend. I know I will. We’ll be celebrating a big birthday in the family (not mine). See you on Monday!
