A note from the PBC Expo Midwife, Hannah Willsmore
Don't forget how amazing you are mama! Mothers are truly incredible - not only do you grow your little baby for 9 months, but then you support your baby to grow and thrive in the outside world too! It's the most important job in the world.
It's important to take care of yourself too. Remember you can't pour from an empty cup, and you're going to be a better mum when you're able to ensure your wellbeing needs are being met. Take time out to go for a walk, catch up with friends, or just do something nice for yourself to relax.
One of my absolute favourite quotes is 'There's no way to be a perfect mother and a million ways to be a good one.' It is so true! To your baby and children, you're an amazing mama, even when you feel like you're not. Perfection in motherhood is impossible, so don't be too hard on yourself as you adjust to your new role.
Remember to celebrate yourself! Motherhood isn't always easy, and you're doing a great job! Celebrate how far you've come and never underestimate the impact you have on the lives of those around you.
