I am an Irish mummy of 3, married to a handsome Canadian for the past 6 years and living in Northern Ireland. Our lives had the usual mix of ups and downs and parenthood was no exception. After having our second child I became passionate about birth and breastfeeding and am now training to be a breastfeeding support worker. I believe in natural or attachment parenting and listening to your instincts. When I have time I write poems and ryhmes on these topics, you can find my breastfeeding poetry HERE.
Becomming mummy and daddy was an intense adventure for us especially having our son, now age 4 and daughter, now 3 just 15 months apart. And life had more in store as 18 months later, an unexpected pregnancy and the shock diagnosis at birth, of our 3rd baby, with a rare facial anomloy was to prove our biggest challenge.

Thankfully with the help and support of an amazing extended family and friends, new and old, we have weathered the roughest part of that journey (we hope) and we are now, one year on, much stronger, wiser and more compassionate than we may ever have been, had our beautiful Tessa, not chosen us, to be her family.
I want to write a little from time to time about our progress and hers and how this little lady has already proved to be an inspiration and force to be reckoned with. Thank you for reading and we hope that you find something here to relate to and that our journey helps yours..<3
