new mum, postnatal, pregnancy

What does new motherhood look like?

Interesting article I read over the weekend with some great photo’s…..proud new Mum’s with their newborn baby! Photographer Jenny Lewis undertook a project called “One Day Young”, photographing new mum’s and their babies within first 24 hours after birth!

In the article Lewis talks about an all familiar issue for me as an independent midwife….
“At the peak of the project Lewis would have weeks with 10 due dates. “I’d be thinking, ‘Please, don’t have them all on the same day!’ When I go on holiday I feel terrible but I can’t plan my whole life around it. My kids have been amazing. ‘Sorry guys I’ve got a One Day Young!’ I say, ‘Back in an hour.’”

My husband and children are amazing too…as I await client labours/births and jumping into action etc when they do! Often not back in an hour though!!
