Don't just say time to talk, mean it.
Its #timetotalk day, raising awareness of mental health and trying to reduce the stigma. How can we mean what we say? How can it be more than the superficial? Here I talk about my views and experiences of being a new mam in lockdown and some of the challenges I have encountered.
Its Maternal Mental Health Awareness day. Its important to mark this day and raise awareness.
I'm a new mam to babi Idris Abbas , so I've given you some background as to my experience of giving birth during the Coronavirus lockdown, how its affected my mental health, and how finding alternative support networks has helped me.
Moments of the week 13/1/20
What I've been up to this week in the Senedd and the region. From street art to Otis Bolamu getting leave to remain in Swansea. To campaigning to save Erasmus, to the petition by Dwr y Felin to roll out Wellbeing Ambassadors across all schools in Wales.
How's the pregnancy Going, Beth?!

How can we improve our society to stamp out such coervicely controlling relationship?
