Why a blog?

Oh look! Yet another mummy blog!

Yes, I realise there are plenty of Mum blogs out there & mine probably won’t be much different, but I thought I’d start one, nonetheless.

I’m Helen & I gave birth to an amazing baby girl in January… I feel like that sounds like I’m introducing myself at a recovery group, not quite how I want to come across.

However, contrary to what social media would have me believe, having a baby isn’t always smiles and happy times. It’s downright hard. Yes, I knew it would be hard, but it’s been exponentially harder than I ever imagined.

So, I’ve decided to get my thoughts down, more to help me than anything else. Sounds selfish, but I love to write so I’m hoping there’ll be something cathartic in writing this blog. Plus, if any other mums find it and it helps them to know they’re not alone and not the only one, then all the better.

If you’ve stayed this far – thank you! Hopefully, I’ll keep this up & you’ll hear more from me (if you want to) soon.
