Inspirational burns survivor Turia Pitt has taken to Instagram to share two adorable new snaps of her baby boy.
Turia, who welcomed baby Hakavai in December, shared the sweet images with her 750,000 followers, alongside a link to the story of his birth.
In her lengthy blog post, Turia reveals how she prepared for her baby boy’s birth at 40 weeks along.
‘At 40 weeks and one day, I thought “Okay mate, it’s time for you to come out and meet the world”.
'So, I swam a kilometre, went for a bushwalk and went four wheel driving …. on a very bumpy road. Nada. ’ she wrote with trademark humour.
‘At 40 weeks and two days, I saw my chiropractor and got my pelvis aligned. I swam a kilometre. I went to an acupuncturist.
‘I made an eggplant parmigiana (I used a recipe touted all over the internet as the best labour inducing food out there - google ‘scalini's eggplant parmigiana’ for the recipe).
It appears Turia’s labour-inducing meal worked – and Hakavai was born the next day.
‘The biggest adjustment for me since being a mum has been accepting that I can’t do everything on my To Do list anymore,’ Turia shared candidly on social media this week.
‘Instead of setting out to achieve ten or fifteen things each day, I just focus on three things that need to be done. And if everything goes to sh*t (quite literally haha!) I prioritise something that makes me feel good.
‘For me, that’s going for a surf or a run. Fill your bucket first!’ she concluded.
