Making friends with my womb

It’s a bizarre thought really, but, two things have recently highlighted my somewhat fractured relationship with my womb.  It isn’t something i would have otherwise given much thought to – but, in view of the 3 surgeries, the disturbing amount of blood i lost afterwards, the scar wounds from my ectopic and the slow pace… Continue reading Making friends with my womb

No matter what, I am great.  We can all keep this affirmation close to our hearts.

Welcome to my journey.
