Today I give myself permission to do nothing

I tend to focus more on what I’m not yet doing, rather than what I’m doing. This means I beat myself up very often…

Motherhood is f**king hard and you’re not meant to be doing this on your own

Those of you who follow my blog know by now that most of my posts are inspired by something that happens to me in my work as a doula. Today is one of those days. I’ve just had a conversation with a new mother of two, who has a baby and a preschooler, and who…
