Each stretch mark reminds me of the nine months my son and I spent as one. How efficiently my body worked to create a new life. My scar lets me know that things don't always go to plan and that sometimes you need help.
Motherhood has made me calmer, more patient and a lot more open-minded. For the first time in my life I feel I have a purpose. I'm finally a mother.
I would love to see your Brelfies. If you use Instagram or Twitter post them using the hashtag #bluerinsebrelfie can't wait to see them.
If you're pregnant or just starting on your breastfeeding journey and need advice or guidance, I'm no expert but I would love to hear from you.
