"Really Mum? More Photos?" - Festival of Punky

Confessions of a New Mum - Guest Post by Bron | Motherhood

This is the second guest post from other bloggers about their memories of being a new Mum. If you would like to write a post for this series let me know in the comments or send me an email to kylie(@)kyliepurtell(dot)com

The gorgeous Bron is sharing her story of being a new Mum today and can I just say, it is emotional, heart-breaking and inspirational all at once. Reading Bron's post really put everything about my own struggles of being a new Mum in perspective for me. I am so impressed and inspired by Bron's strength and courage in the face adversity and terrifying times. Her children are gorgeous and her words are simply wonderful. Thank you so much for sharing your story Bron!


" Does he have brain damage?" Andrew asks.
I laugh out loud wondering where he got that idea.
I am in shock, exhausted,delirious.
Andrew is crying. Family are outside the door crying.
I am just hungry.

I just watched as they tried to resuscitate my child. Two fingers in his tiny chest. He is white. Floppy. No noise.....and still reality has not sunk in.
