Is it teething time for your little one?

 

She became a mum for the first time earlier this year, but Binky Felstead revealed that she wouldn’t have been ready for motherhood if it wasn’t for the midwives who helped her.

 

The mum opened up about her early days in a touching Instagram post. We love that Binky is being honest about becoming a mum. It’s important to talk about the difficult moments and the rough days because it shows other mums who are struggling that they are not alone.

 

The Made In Chelsea star wrote, “I wouldn’t have got through the first few weeks of being a new mum without my midwife visits. Every time they arrived at my house, I felt instantly at ease.”

 

 

I wouldn’t have got through the first few weeks of being a new mum without my midwife visits. Every time they arrived at my house, I felt instantly at ease and felt I could ask them anything. Those early days of motherhood are so daunting and I literally had a list of questions as long as my arm. I am so thankful for the support that they gave me. Finding out that 1 in 3 midwives feel undervalued really was a surprise! Having done so much for me, it made me feel really sad that these amazing people, who do such an amazing and worthwhile job, feel this way. The support they gave me was invaluable, so now I am supporting them! This Christmas I am joining @pampersworld in asking parents (new or not so new!) to thank their midwives for the incomparable jobs they do. For every story shared on Facebook (PampersUKIre), Twitter (Pampers_UK) or Instagram (@pampersworld) with #ThankYouMidwife, #Pampers will donate £1 to the Benevolent Fund of the @midwives_rcm which will be used to support midwives in need through the festive season and beyond. #ad
