I am coming to the end of my maternity leave with mixed feelings and feel it might be a good idea to write down where this year has taken me to remind myself how LUCKY I have been to have the opportunity to take a full year (and a bit extra) of maternity leave before I embark on my next chapter as a working mama!
I finished up at my job (at a fashion recruitment agency) in November 2017 and managed to have almost 5 weeks of boxsets, naps, netflix, tea + cake dates, christmas shopping and pretty much doing nothing until Enzio’s arrival on Thursday 7th December.
MEET AS MAMAS, CONNECT AS WOMEN.
If you are new to the whole motherhood thing then you may well have heard of Peanut. Peanut was founded by the tech savvy mama, Michelle Kennedy (@michellekennedylon) and it is an app that connects you to like minded mamas in your area!
THE HYPNOBIRTHING BABE has arrived! YAY. I’m Chloë and I am a first time mama to Enzio who as I write this post, is 9 months. I am currently on maternity leave and training to become a hypnobirthing teacher – it’s something soon after I had a baby was on my mind, a feeling that I couldn’t ignore and after months of umming and ahhing, I just though F*CK it…let’s do this!
Ay caramba. I can’t believe my baby is TWO months old already! It has flown by. I’ve been trying to write this post for a while now but you know…things have got in the way as suspected with a newborn baby.
I recently visited the COWSHED spa in Selfridges and it was quite possibly one of my favourite weekends of my whole pregnancy. It was super important for me to have some wind down time after such a busy year of being pregnant, going on hen dos, weddings, moving house etc and I had heard really good things about the mum to be package at Cowshed so thought I’d book myself in for a full afternoon of pampering!
