Hi, I’m Nicole. Today I turn 26 years old. Happy Birthday to me! The most important people in my life know me as Mama. I’ve been called Superhero, brave and plenty other kind words but in reality, I’m just a girl who was thrown a curve ball in life who made a decision to help others. It didn’t come straight away and I struggled with our new life, and you know what that’s ok! My… View Post

Thank you Maternal Mental Health Awareness week *possible trigger warning This year was the UK’s first Maternal Mental health awareness week, between 1-7 May Perinatal mental health partnership held themed based days for everybody to get involved & raise awareness. Charities and organisations ran events to celebrate & support mums & their families. While post-natal depression is fairly well known, there are a number of other pregnancy-related conditions that aren’t spoken about as much. These… View Post

My Daughter is turning 5 this year. Every day I look at her and I’m completely amazed by how far she has come. Our Mother/daughter relationship is unconventional yet she teaches me as much as I am teaching her. Say what you want and do not be afraid to say no Olivia may be non-verbal however when she wants something, oh boy does she let you know. Either she will throw her arms out. Let’s… View Post

WOW, I can’t believe this was taken almost 11 years ago! How much we didn’t know and how much we thought we knew! Childfree and carefree teenagers with not a single worry in the world! No idea that in 7 years we would have a family together, knee deep in nappies and able to understand the complex medical jargon. Midweek partying a distance memory and now singing along to Disney soundtracks on REPEAT! Having babies… View Post

Being a Mother is arguably the hardest job in the world, it doesn’t come with an instruction manual listing step by step, day to day How to proceed. We are all just going through Parenthood as best we can. It’s a learning process that simply never ends. Does it differ when you have a Premature baby? You can read every baby book out there in preparation. However what happens when your child is born prematurely?… View Post

Soon you will turn 26 and the life you are currently living is far from the life you had envisioned. Which has made me ponder what I wish I had known when I was sixteen. The feelings of fear, Self-conscious, Insecurity and confusion are a far cry from your teenage self. Hey Nicole, Wow, these last 10 years have been turbulent. Unforuntantly you are in for a rocky road please do not be afraid, you will… View Post

Being a Mother is arguably the hardest job in the world, it doesn’t come with an instruction manual listing step by step, day to day How to proceed. We are all just going through Parenthood as best we can. It’s a learning process that simply never ends, I may have only been a mother for four short years however I have learnt some valuable lessons. Here’s what Motherhood has taught me so far.  * Motherhood… View Post

Self-care, Self-love… This is something I don’t think people practice enough myself included. Sometimes I treat self-care as a reward, yet taking care of yourself is so important Whether you’re a Mother, Father, Student, Male or female we all deal with stress, some days life just gets a little too much. Letting go of anything or anyone in any given situation. Let go of the person who’s broke your heart, makes you feel like you’re… View Post

  I think it’s important to address all aspects of my life including suffering from postnatal depression, encouraging more awareness and bringing comfort to myself and others. I never wanted to tell my story. But If it helps one person Why not share it? I know somewhere out there, there is somebody reading this, relating to everything I’m writing. From the outside, I look fine. Friends and family think I’m “happy” probably a bit of… View Post
