Will My Breastfeeding Journey Be Different With My Next Child?

I’ve been thinking a lot recently about how this baby will differ from my first and one of the biggest questions I have is whether I will find the breastfeeding journey the same? With Jake, I had no issues. Once I was ready to hold him after my c-section, the midwife placed him just below my breast and Jake quickly snuffled around and moved himself to my nipple and happily began to feed.

My Pregnancy- The First Trimester

I was really organised when I found out I was pregnant and thought it would be a nice touch to write a diary. I imagined it being funny, helping other pregnant Mums and being a nice keepsake to look back on… Then the morning sickness started.

So I have a little bit of my diary from my first trimester that I can share with you but after that you will just have to imagine me laying on the sofa and having my head over the toilet!

Inspirational Stories Week Seven: Just Average Jen- weight loss journey

Inspirational stories: Many of us have them but may not even realise how important they truly are or are too modest to shout it from the roof-tops.

For this reason, I wanted to find some truly inspiring people who have a story that needs to be told. Each week I will bring you a different story with a different angle but one that you will just have to read.
