Today I would like to talk a bit about my journey with perinatal depression. I feel that this is something I mostly do not talk about as pregnancy is supposed to be a joyous journey. Unfortunately by ignoring this very sad and real issue we are taking the power away from women who are going through very scary mental issues and who need the support and re-assurance to seek help.
What if I can’t or don’t love my second child as much as the first? It looks even worse in black on white than it sounds in my head. But this thought has literally been hounding me for a while and I feel terrible for even writing about it…
Hello, my name is Brigitte. I am a working mom from Cape Town. I understand the struggle between trying to stay fit and juggling kids, a career, family, and staying healthy.
I write about personal health and fitness related topics, parenting, self development, kids health and fitness, kids activities, entrepreneurship, family, food, fun and outdoorsy stuff.
I know better than anyone how challenging life can be and this blog is really just to shine some light on all of the above subjects.
Despite the fact that I run my own Marketing and Project Management business, I am absolutely crazy about fitness (still) and something that most people don’t know is that I am a qualified personal trainer. I offer a lot of free exercise programs and advice as well as diet and weight-loss information on my blog.
I am a mother of a boy (6) named Sammy and soon to be mom to another baby boy named Saul due 15 April.
The purpose of the blog is to share helpful and useful information and ideas with other like-minded women. I want to create a community of sharing and women supporting other women in their journey’s.
I love feedback and interesting stories/news and recommendations please share with me on email@example.com
