It is not always a smooth ride

I was very fortunate to have had a pretty easy recovery from my first delivery (fingers crossed for the second one), as were the other Babyccino girls. But while we are doing a “having babies” themed week I thought it might be good to mention that a lot of mothers, through no fault of their own, find themselves in a dark hole not ready to celebrate the huge change in their life, otherwise known as a baby. I read this article in the Guardian the other day that I thought was really poignant. It might not be the easiest read, especially if you are about to have a baby, but if you are interested I thought it was a really well-written and thought-provoking article (and it has a happy end…)!
