The day I met a real life heroine - Marrianne Rooprai


‘It’s not a Competition’

I’ve recently been talking to a couple of new mums, because my boy is a couple of months older than their babies, naturally they were asking about milestones that I have already been through with my boy and they were yet to face. I’ve noticed that they were a little concerned about the time their babies were taken to achieve some of the milestones. As they shared their worries with me, I couldn’t help but feel upset to see those lovely new mums who were doing a brilliant job have been affected by some of the things they were told by others. It’s bad enough that every new parent questions everything they do, often doubting themselves, unsure if what they do is the right thing. It takes time to learn to trust your own self and your inner instincts when you become a parent for the first time.
