In today’s episode, I speak with a beautiful mum-of-one, Anna Miles. Going into this interview, I had no idea that Anna had anxiety – she’s the sort of mum who makes it look beautiful and effortless – which by the way, isn’t a bad thing. She radiates positivity and she’s loved for it. But I am truly grateful for how she opens up in this episode about the toll her anxiety took on her entry to motherhood and I know those of you who do or have struggled with mental health will appreciate it too.
Today, we talk about her decision to co-sleep with her son from an early age, the impact of this and having a newborn on her marriage, how she met the criticism of others, and how she overcame the ‘shame’ she felt for bedsharing. We discuss Anna’s breastfeeding journey, the pressure she put on herself to breastfeed, how she improved her low supply, and her gentle parenting philosophy. Anna has a blog and I read every single post – her writing is as poignant and relatable as our conversation today and I hope you love it as much as I do.
