You Are Not Alone

Whether you are a first time Mother with a brand new baby or a Mother with young children, I want you to know that I understand how hard being a Mother can be.  Being a Mother can be the most satisfying feeling a woman has. It empowers women, but it can also be one of the most overwhelming feelings a woman has. To the Mother who is doing her absolute best yet still feels like she isn’t enough, I want you know that you are not alone. I understand you. I understand your feelings, your emotions, and your mindset.



To the Mother who looks at her watch at 4pm and thinks, “how will I make it to bed time?”  I know how you feel and you are not alone.

To the Mother who lets her toddler watch TV so that she can put her baby to sleep. I know how you feel and you are not alone.

To the Mother who finally manages to stroke her baby to sleep and then accidently makes a noise while she tip toes out of the room. I know how you feel and you are not alone.

To the Mother who finally puts the children to bed and then crashes on the sofa only to then spend the evening watching TV and eating unhealthy food. I know how you feel and you are not alone.

To the Mother who just falls asleep and is immediately woken up by the cries of her baby. I know how you feel and you are not alone.

To the Mother who finally puts the baby back to bed, only to realise that the baby’s cries have woken up the toddler. I know how you feel and you are not alone.

To the Mother who has been up all night attending to her baby but still has to be up early to get the older children to school. I know how you feel and you are not alone.

To the Mother who spends time making healthy home cooked meals for her babies and toddlers but ends up picking most of it up off the floor. I know how you feel and you are not alone.

To the Mother who gets ready really quickly and is forced to use dry shampoo because she does not have enough time in the shower to wash her hair. I know how you feel and you are not alone. 

To the Mother, that is still wearing her maternity jeans and nursing bras for a few extra months. I know how you feel and you are not alone.

To the Mother that looks at her home and is tired of tidying up over and over again. I know how you feel and you are not alone.

To the Mother who feels so exhausted but also so helpless and sad when her child is unwell. I know how you feel and you are not alone.

To the Mother that is constantly exhausted but still keeps trying her best or to the Mother that thinks she is doing so much but still feels like she is not doing enough.  I know how you feel and you are not alone.

To all the Mothers whichever stage you are in, on this utterly exhausting yet beautiful journey. I want you to know, we all need to know that we are on this journey together and none of us are alone.
