Welcome! I’m Rachel and I write this blog about my beautiful life as a young Mumma, wife and woman.
I met my hubby in high school when we were both merely 15 years of age. We’ve since been inseperable. We were engaged at 18 and married at 20.
I started blogging shortly after we decided to start trying to conceive and recorded vlogs on my Youtube channel. We fell pregnant 3 months later and I shared my symptoms, thoughts and all my excitement and purchases.
I went to my 8.5 week scan and saw a gorgeous wriggly baby so I wasn’t too concerned about our 12 week scan. We had our next scan at 14 weeks and heard the dreaded words “I’m sorry, there is no heartbeat”. I had had a missed miscarriage where my placenta/amniotic fluid had continued to grow and had no signs that we had lost our baby until that point.
I recorded a very raw video after finding out about my loss and have been trying to create awareness and help women going through a similar thing ever since via videos, blogs, emails and comments.
7 cycles later and we fell pregnant again with our son Cameron. I had a beautiful pregnancy which I shared throughout this blog.
After giving birth to Cam I suffered from severe anxiety attacks and post-natal depression (from fear of losing him). It’s an ongoing process but I’m doing much better now and do not have anxiety attacks anymore. I also relactated after having to switch to formula feeding for a short period of time due to sedative medication. I shared that as well on a blog called The Relactater.
Since then things have been beautiful. Truly beautiful. So I’m sharing that with you, as well as the downright difficult.
We live in a lovely home in Australia. I enjoy spending time with my hubby, family and friends, helping my baby boy discover the world, creating videos and taking photos, digital scrapbooking, reading, watching movies, going to mothers groups and writing.
Thank you SO much for stopping by!
