Bump, Baby… Blue?
Date: Wednesday 28th November // Time: 10am – 12noon
From before having a baby is even a blip on our radar, we are exposed to countless images in media, of glowing new mothers gazing adoringly into the eyes of their precious newborn bundles of joy. The perfect idealisation of newborn baby bliss that forms an expectation in our minds of how to measure our own experience of motherhood in those early weeks and months.
However, for up to 1 in 5 new mums (and up to 1 in 10 new dads), this is a far cry from the reality that hits us like a tonne of bricks somewhere in between feeding, nappy changing and exhaustion.
Our three special guests – former Olympian Libby Trickett, psychologist and Gidget Foundation ambassador Chelsea Pottenger, and ‘Just Another Mummy Blog’ creator Steph Pase will provide us with some useful tips and tools around self-care in early motherhood, nurturing your mental wellbeing and how to recognise when you need help.
