I want to share my story of postnatal depression and how it affected my body and mind. After the birth of my third child I lost a lot of blood while giving birth and become anaemic, which caused me to get many infections.

I was home-bound for a couple of months in order to get my health back into shape.
It was very hard for me as I am a very active mum who is always busy so I really struggled. I tried to get back into shape and healthy but my body was struggling and my mind also. So I listened to my body and mental state and I went to speak to a professional on how to deal with depression.
She advised me to take time out and focus on myself, my hobbies or something I was passionate about or loved to do.
Thanks to the support of my husband, family and friends, I put my mindset into something I really wanted to do and to leave a legacy for my children, my business Diamond Kidz, a children’s boutique store.
