The Due Date In general none of us take much notice of due dates. On average only four percent of babies actually arrive on their 40 week due date (according to various Baby experts). My son arrived at 42+2. For us multiple mommas we have another date – the ‘in between’ date that we all… Read More Happy Due Date Unicorn Babies!
Living with PTSD. I live my life day to day. Aside from the standard stresses that come from parenting and ‘stuff’, I hold onto a glorious contentment. A gratitude and wonder at being Mummy. It was a long time coming and I thank goodness. And then days like yesterday happen and you come along and… Read More Will you ever let me go?
Following a traumatic arrival at 29 weeks gestation, my triplet girls spent the first 11 weeks of their lives in hospital. They were the longest weeks of my life.

They did. Hospital I was fortunate to be in the hospital under observation when… Read More I Met My Girls In A Photograph

I do so in the hope that we can extend a huge fertile hug to anyone who needs one. If it can work out for us when it seemed impossible, then it can work for… Read More A Unicorn Mummy
So, earlier on in the week I posted that I’d had my first bath since the girls were born 15 months ago. And yes, I have been showering meanwhile! Timehop reminded me of the first time I’d taken the girls out on my own this time a year ago. My goodness, it felt like such… Read More A Week of Firsts
As Maya came home from her heart surgery, we started April 2017 with relief and expectation. Expectation that with better weather we were likely to experience better health. I longed to stay out of hospitals, other than our standard check ups. We just wanted to enjoy our family at home. It was a wonderful thought.… Read More Amelie’s surgery – Second Cleft Branchial Cyst
I have learnt so much about kindness over the last 12 months. From family, neighbours and lifetime friends to friends I have met in more recent years (who will now be lifetime friends), from NHS staff, community volunteers to virtual friends through shared interest Facebook groups, they have proffered such overwhelming kindness to me and… Read More Kindness
