Postpartum depression is common, affecting one in 7 women within a year of giving birth.
I have days where I scream at my baby then bang my head against a wall for being such a cow.
Our daughter is perfect and we regret nothing. She was worth it. But it's sad that our experience has left us dreading the idea of more children.
Fresh air is so important. Even when our baby was little, I would park her pram in the shade while I had a cuppa in the garden if I couldn't manage a walk. It relaxes you, clears your head and helps you face the rest of your day.
