I had given birth to Margot via a C-section and almost immediately I felt like things weren’t right. I didn’t bond at all with Margot (unlike my first baby Phoebe where I had immediate overwhelming love). A lack of bond made me really resent Margot. I absolutely hated feeding her, it wasn’t just the pain, I was getting huge anxiety every time I had to feed her and it took all I had in me not to rip her off every feed.

We recently ran a competition on https://www.facebook.com/ahealthymumpage to win some Tanker Toppers. One of the conditions to enter was to provide a “Tip for a new Mum”. There were so many amazing entries and I wish that every new Mum had an opportunity to read them.
