My little princess has had a rough week .. it breaks my heart to hear her cry so today she gets lots of extra cuddles & kisses 😘
So in love with this highlight ✨ looking like a glazed doughnut and I'm obsessed 🍩🙈 @iconic.london
Thank you @littleyosef for my gorgeous onesie 🌺
My angel Abigail,
I loved you before you were born. When I first held you, one of my childhood dreams came true. A fierce need to protect you came over me and has never gone away. Every day, I stare at your perfect little features and get so excited at every new sound and expression you make.
I constantly go from wanting you to be my baby forever and being excited about all the amazing things you’ll do in this life.
You are beautiful. People told you this from the day you were born. But I hope as you grow, you see beauty as a rounded quality, not just superficial. You were created with purpose and uniqueness, crafted to stand out, not fit in. So be your own kind of beautiful, my sweet girl. Don’t let the world tell you what that looks like. Have confidence, be healthy, be genuine, be kind - this is beauty.
I fall deeper in love with you at your every breath. You’re actually mine! My precious and perfect little gift!
I’m always with you. Be brave, have courage & love life!
Love from Mum. X
Mummy update: my stitches are finally healed and I’m starting to feel a lot more energetic these days! Breastfeeding has become less stressful however, I’ve noticed a decrease in my milk supply after just one day of not having Abigail on my boob for every feed 😩 so I’ve been pumping as much as I can throughout the day! Any suggestions fellow mummas? Can’t believe my princess is almost 1 month old 🙈 baby capsule from @cnp_baby#CybexCloudQ
Just three weeks after giving birth to my angel and I’ve come to terms with all the new changes with my body. I’ve welcomed my dimpled thighs, my widened hips and loss of muscle definition... for now 😌 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although I’m not dedicating all my time to training, I have found new ways and techniques which have been effective in building back my strength along with a nutrition filled meal plan I’ve created. My main priority is Abigail but I haven’t forgotten to use the minimal spare time I have to work on me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To the women who think it’s impossible to get your old body back: not only can you get your old body back, you can build an even better version of you! 💪🏽

Baby girl, you melt my heart ❣
34 weeks pregnant vs 2 weeks postpartum.
I’ve been receiving some really harsh criticism about my body after giving birth.
Every woman’s body is different and will recover at it’s own pace. You can’t compare yourself to others but what you can do is set yourself goals and give your body the attention it deserves.
To insinuate that I’ve had any surgeries just two weeks after giving birth is ridiculous and absurd. My body is a result of hard work and dedication.
I want to empower my fellow mums as I know how difficult it is to be a new mother and try to feel like your old self at the same time. Between breastfeeding, changing diapers and bonding, it’s so hard to allocate anytime for yourself and your needs. As I’ve learnt over the past two weeks, this is absolutely achievable! Remember: happy mum, happy bub.
So many of you have reached out to me to find out how I bounced back and I promise I’ll be sharing all my tips and secrets with you real soon. It’s definitely a work in progress but let’s smash this journey together. Stay tuned... ❤️😘
Happy New Year to my amazing IG fam ✨ My main goal for 2018: to be the best mother I possibly can be. That’s my promise to you, Abigail Elizabeth ... photograph by the incredible @littlejeanniephotography 💖
Stepping out with my princess 👑 Although I had a natural birth, the recovery after stitches has definitely been a battle. The pain, discomfort and sleepless nights have been a challenge but it’s all been worth it. I know my body will heal in time.
This new life with Abigail has been an adjustment and it’s all about her. I want only the best for my princess and have made it a priority to breastfeed. It’s been such a challenge but I’m going to continue to persevere through. The beauty of breastfeeding and bonding time with just her and I leaves a warm feeling in my heart. It’s something only a mother can explain.
Even though I’ve been so content with chilling in my pyjamas, I’m still going to make the effort to get up, get dressed and get my glam on.
