  • Who here filled out a postpartum depression questionnaire? 🤷‍♀️💁‍♀️🤷‍♀️ .
.
Are you sure??? .
.
Because I didn't. I was handed the PHQ -9 : a screening tool for general depression. The same one my husband or your uncle would get at their doctor's appointments.
.
Here is an excerpt from my blog describing part of this experience: "As I waited in the exam room, I looked down at the generic depression questionnaire the medical assistant had given me; holding the clipboard in one hand and my beautiful breastfeeding five week old in the other and, blinking through the tears that welled up in my eyes, I filled out the PHQ –9. It asked: Over the past two weeks, how often have you been bothered by any of the following problems? and I was to answer by assigning a frequency. As an old friend and I recently joked, not only was this questionnaire cold and disingenuous but the questions were definitely not postpartum friendly. One could almost muster a laugh. Feeling tired or having little energy? Uh, yeah. I have a 5 week old who cluster feeds all night. Poor appetite or overeating? Well, I am breastfeeding so I am basically Chris Farley’s SNL Gap Girls character in the fries sketch. Trouble concentrating on things? Yep. Mom brain is so real I’d lobby for it to have its own ICD-10 code. "

  • 🌼 Jeg nyder simpelthen fælles barsel så meget, at jeg synes, at det er lidt trist, at der kun er et par uger til, at Tim skal tilbage på arbejde. Omvendt bliver det skønt at mig og Flora får alenetid sammen igen, men den her fælles barsel kommer aldrig igen (vi er done nu - 2 smukke piger er helt perfekt 👌). Så det er en æra, der slutter om et par uger. Det er altså mærkeligt.
Ps. Og hvor ville jeg ønske, at flere fædre tog mere barsel med deres børn. I snit tager den danske mand 30 dages barsel. Det er fandme ikke meget! Det er godt for både barn, far OG mor, når far tager barsel. Far og barn får en tættere tilknytning og samlet set, er det bedre for mors karriere, at man fordeler barsel liiidt mere mellem mor og far. Mit ønske scenarie er, at vi havde 18 måneders barsel i DK: 6 måneder til mor, 6 måneder til far og så 6 måneder man selv kan bestemme over. Jeg køber desuden ikke argumentet, at mænd ikke ville "kunne lide" at være på barsel. Det er for barnets skyld, at der holdes barsel. Der er også mange mødre, der keder sig under barsel og sådan er det.

  • Yikes! This day came around so quickly I’m not sure where the last 38 weeks have gone. For a self confessed workaholic who absolutely loves her job this is going to be a huge change. I won’t lie when I say I’m feeling totally lost already and it’s only been a couple of hours. I’m sure, as so many people have told me, when the baby comes along things will be very different and totally worth it. Although I think it speaks volumes about the job you have, company you work for and people you work with when your in tears about taking 6 months out, even for such an amazing reason. Thank you to my incredible colleagues and especially my amazing team for a fab send off this week. Now to see if I can get rid of these enormous swollen feet before the baby arrives 😂 #adventure #maternityleave #newbeginnings #ilovemyjob #bestteamever #fatfeet #adventuretime #newadventuresawait #mumtobe #chwaraeteg

  • 14/07: 🌿 The End of Maternity Leave 🌿
A much different feeling this time round. 
With Leo, I still remember sitting in his room, giving him his bedtime bottle and sobbing after a wonderful “last day together” at Tatton Park. I was full of Mum Guilt and apprehension about how things would work as a working mum and how Leo would be with others looking after him as I returned to work part time. Sure enough, we both got used to it and I welcomed the cliche of a hot brew and adult company and having that car journey home all excited to see him. Eventually, I went back full time ahead of Sienna being born. 
This time I’ve no anguish or anxiety as we’ve made the decision, as a family, that I won’t be returning to work and I shall take a career break whilst the children are young. I’m full of excitement and apprehension about what this will mean but I cannot wait to be the one to take Leo to preschool and make sure he has everything in his bag, to see that little face run up to me as he finishes his day and be the first to hear all about what he did at preschool- eventually. Those are moments you can’t get back. I want to be the one to see Sienna take her first steps. It’s true that there’s always time to make more money but I would take time with my children over that. Leo wants to walk through the woods at this age and go on “adventures” to the park and I’m so happy I can be the one to take him. Motherhood feels like such a privilege and I feel so lucky I can do this.

  • How many of you have littles who use the “I need to go potty” line as their favorite stalling or get out bed tactic!? 🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️⁣
⁣
One tip I coach parents on for this age is to print out a cute “potty pass” like the examples below and allow your kiddo one use per night. It’s fun for them to redeem a pass and helps them make a better choice as to when they really do need to go! ⁣

  • And just like that it's another year over and the six week hols have finally arrived. One of my little loves bought me this mug today and I cried, my first 'mummy' mug! Baby Studholme got more spoilt than I did from my lovely class today! 
I finally have six weeks off then I'll head back to work for two weeks before my mat leave starts 🙌🏼 A huge well done to all the teachers, TAs and support staff out there - we made it!

  • It was back to work today! 📚🤓
.
Going back on the kids' last day was all kinds of weird. Lots of hi... bye! So I'm officially not on maternity leave any more but have the six weeks off! I'm going in to sort out classrooms and get my brain and files organised 🤯🙈
.
Our new desk arrived yesterday, just in time for all the September prep I need to do. I'm working on making it a nice, baby-free haven for us to switch off our parent brains. Ryan works from home so it's been a long time coming!!

  • Today marks the start of maternity leave 😬 we’ll officially it’s the 6 weeks holiday and my actual maternity leave starts 2nd September! Been a bit of a strange day walking around School saying goodbye and see you when baby comes. I’ve got a list longer than my arm of jobs I want to do before the end of the summer though so I won’t be board. Everything seems so real now, best get a move on with baby’s nursery as well 💙😬👶🏼🤰 #33weekspregnant #maternityleave #nearlythere #pcospregnancy #pregnancyafterinfertility

  • 2 syns / 41kcal of yummy twister goodness.

Spent 6 hours in A&E with James last night - he’s okay; but we’re all super tired. Wondering when the earliest acceptable time is to go to bed on a Friday night 😂

  • Mom’s in Medicine - we’re not a rarity and yet everyone still seems shocked and amazed 🤱🏻
.
Yes it is shocking for us to continue working until we go into labor. It is crazy for us to return to work after as little as 3 weeks of maternity leave. it is amazing for many of us to continue breastfeeding and pumping in the setting of 40-80 hour work weeks 💪🏼👩🏻‍⚕️
.
Societal acceptance has come pretty far but we still have a ways to go. Let’s continue to normalize pregnancy and parenthood in medicine! 👶🏻❤️

  • Happy #internationalbumpday to all the other #miraclepregnancy mamas out there. 
I'm officially on leave while we wait out these last quiet days in the heat. 
Here's what that means so far: watermelon, naps, canceling well-intended plans, toddler hugs, popsicles, hypnobirthing meditation, lemonade, and so much qt with my sweetheart. 
For me it's always really hard to take time off (like even when I've been working on getting pregnant sooooooo looooong) because I love my job so much. But it became clear last week that my physical/emotional energy had to be directed internally for these last few days and I just couldn't serve my clients as well as I wanted.
So for now we wait, and enjoy each other and eat and rest. 
Work will be there again in a few weeks. 🍉🍉🍉🍉🍉🍉🍉🍉🍉🍉🍉
