Dear future Mamas…

This is a recent experiment, one that was suggested to me as a writing prompt for university. It is the first of, what I'm hoping will be, a series of advice based letters to future mamas (and daddy's). Others will be more age or topic specific, including being a mama with Epilepsy.

It is also a little reminder to everyone, that no mater what life throughs your way, always find the time to continue with what you love.

Mama Vs Epilepsy – Staying safe

I am a young, first time mama and when I fell pregnant at the age of eighteen, I didn't know the first thing about looking after a baby, let alone with the added hindrance of my disability.
