🍈🍈 World Breastfeeding Week 🍼
I took breastfeeding for granted with Ezzie. Despite the few days of discomfort at the start and occasionally feeling resentful that it was all on me for night feeds, it was an experience I look back on fondly. I weaned him off when I became pregnant with Etta just because I thought sharing my bodyContinue reading “🍈🍈 World Breastfeeding Week 🍼”
I had a miscarriage.
It was hard to think of a title for this blog post so I thought I’d just come out and say it.

I was due to beContinue reading “Welcome to the world Etta Grace Libi!”
So where does Etta’s heart journey begin? I think it’s fair to say our lives changed forever on July 11th 2019. I feel very lucky to have had a really smooth pregnancy with Ezra and because of this I went into our 20 week scan with baby number 2- as I think most do- lookingContinue reading “Etta’s Diagnosis”
