I am so excited to tell you we have our third guest post on ForYouMummas, “The inner workings of an anxious mama” by the lovely Alanna Jenkins.
Alanna mother of 2 year old Jameson writes about her struggles with anxiety during motherhood and what she does to overcome this on a day to day basis.
Having had a my c-section between 11am and 12 midday I didn’t attempt to stand up until the next morning once the catheter had been removed, all I can say is ouch! I’m not going to lie and say it wasn’t too painful because for me it was, I surprised myself at managing to actually get up less than 24 hours after surgery and walk to the bathroom to have a shower.
The trip down to the postnatal ward was an interesting one, I remember looking at Jack once we got to the ward rolling my eyes and giving him evils because the staff hadn’t exactly wheeled me down carefully. I felt like I was bumped into pretty much everything along the corridors possible
“Oh your so lucky to be having a c-section” Urm excuse me? I was actually shocked the first time someone said this to me. I had just found out that our baby was breech and that a c-section was probably going to be the only option for us.
We’ve been so fortunate to have held a short Q&A with the lovely Love Island Winner from 2016, Cara Delahoyde which we’re so excited to share with you!
Jack and I were smiling at each other walking down to the theatre room, I couldn’t take Jack seriously all gowned up.
We were understandably nervous but also quite relaxed compared to how I thought I would feel.
It’s quite a strange feeling to know you’re walking down to theatre, I had a few people on shift wishing me well as I walked past, it’s not how I imagined at all but I suppose they’re doing their best to make things seem as normal as they can.
