“Birth takes a woman’s deepest fears about herself and shows her that she is stronger than them.”
It was never easy being a first-time mum at 25.
So many fears ran through my mind from the moment I finally realised I was pregnant🤰🏻, to my difficult labour, and when I gave birth with not much breastmilk to offer my baby 👶🏻 and blamed myself for her being thin, to caring for the baby alone once my confinement nanny left...
But I told myself: being great starts by being fearless, and fearless starts by having faith 💫!
I had to be fearless 💪🏼 to have faith in caring for my child every step of the way, till now when she can’t stop with her crazy mischievous antics every second! 😵
