A healthy, happy new year
Whatever goals you set yourself this January, the most crucial thing is to take care, of your little ones, your partner and ultimately yourself. January isn’t the easiest month to get through, and with pressures and worries from elsewhere, it’s easy to feel lost. Don’t keep it to yourself, ask for help, talk, be honest. As new and expectant parents, you’re more likely to feel ruled by your emotions, so look out for them. If you feel down, seek help – whether it’s pretnatal depression
, postnatal depression
or just feeling out of sorts, talking to others is always a solid first step to feeling more like you again.
We wish you nothing but the best for 2018 – and while none of us can control what goes on outside of our lives (and sometimes what goes on inside them) if we look out for ourselves and each other, there’s every chance that the new year could be the happiest, healthiest one yet.
And if that’s not worth celebrating, what is?
