While doing some “homework” for my PND support group I started to look at the word mum.
We were asked to draw something that represented our journey into motherhood and I started by doodling the word ‘mum’. It was while doing this I noticed the form of the letters appeared to illustrate the ups and downs of motherhood perfectly.
It’s reassuring to think about being a mum in this way. There are lots of ups and downs but as each dark day passes there often comes a light day – after each trough comes a peak.
Try to ride the waves, as tough as it can be, try and enjoy the ride because you may find that going with the flow uses a lot less energy than fighting against them.
