I called this post a letter from me to you, but to be completely honest I’m writing it mainly for me. As I write this my baby is 5 months old and I am easing back into work. I am making tough decisions, I’m starting to understand the “juggle” many parents speak of, and I feel like I’m moving into a new world.
I’m pleased to let you know that my baby boy, Rowan, was born on December 2nd 2017. I found out I was pregnant back in April 2017, and I started planning my maternity leave soon afterwards. Now that I’m 5 months into having a baby, I’m so grateful I took that time. I can now also look back and see what worked, and can share with you how I got through pregnancy (which I personally didn’t find easy). It’s a bit of a long one, but I hope it helps. Let’s dive in!
