I have been a mum for nearly four years now and I have to say it has been the most challenging and most rewarding role I have ever undertook. Like many of you out there I have felt overwhelmed by the pressure and intensity that comes with loving and caring for these tiny little things that seem so delicate and unpredictable.

Yep, I’ve had three of these little lovelies – in three years.
