My First Day as a Stay-at-Home Dad

Well I’m finally at the end of day one of being a Stay-at-Home dad for the week and I’m already thinking about the fact I have another four of these to go. Suffice to say, there’s a part of me that feels a little bit like this: Spending My First Day as a Stay-at-Home Dad In all honesty though, it wasn’t actually too bad. The couldn’t have gone any easier. Isabelle loved the bath, something I haven’t done with her for a while due to the fact she hated being in there alone. She then got dressed without any problems,…

I’m About to Return to Work After Maternity Leave – Goodbye MAT Leave

So this is it. This is my last week of being a full time mum, and as of tomorrow morning, I am officially, begrudgingly, going back to work after maternity leave.

Using Online Support to Help With Postnatal Depression

When it comes to depression, it’s incredibly important to have a place to be able to talk openly and honestly about how you are feeling.
You have to be able to find support from others who have been where you are or empathise with your situation. The only problem is, that it’s often a very hard thing to open up in front of others, face to face. Or maybe, perhaps, there isn’t anywhere a person feels like they can go to where they can open up, and talking to their family isn’t something they feel comfortable with either. That’s where the internet comes in.
