Hannah- Yes, there were plenty of moments! I had my second son overseas in Singapore. Trying to navigate a foreign healthcare system was definitely not easy. We often take so much of our system for granted. It did not help that my doctor kept pushing for me to have a C Section. So overall, the experience leading up to childbirth was a lot of work.
I have two amazing little boys. Other than having good health for myself and the babies during the pregnancies, (both which are extremely important), having a strong support structure was critical. This included support from my spouse, my workplace, my doctor, my friends and my extended family. Taking on the brave new world of parenting and finding ways to fit a new child into our busy lives can be intimidating. I am very fortunate to have a strong support system, which enables me to take care of myself and my children. The more support we can give one another would definitely help mothers experience a good pregnancy and birth.... with confidence.
Hi Sara, That is great to hear. I worked with Little Ripples a few years back through my scarf company- SixteenR. We designed headscarves for the Little Ripples teachers. if any of the players or coaches need athletic headscarves at United Soccer Academy, I am happy to help design.
