This tiny human entered our lives on 5/5/17 & turned our worlds upside down. I have never imagined that I could have loved more than I do, and I’m proud to have brought her into the world. But nothing worth it ever comes easy. Conception was certainly not straightforward, seeing my body change in pregnancy was hard, the traumatic birth & blood loss was HARD and then looking after a tiny human was HARD. Mental health is a REAL thing. Baby blues ARE a real thing. PTSD is a real thing. Can we just take time to appreciate and help ...
Going to miss this cheeky little sassy girl over the next couple days. I know I’ll have a good time, have adult conversation and be able to eat food without getting indigestion.... and have a cuppa in peace, but it’s going to be weird without her clinging on to me and wiping her food and spit all over my clothes . . . . #esméefakim#blueeyedasian

Sleepy eyes. 😴 Daddy does bedtime on the weekends 😍 I’ve managed to finally film our sleep journey today. I’ll edit and upload it this week. It’s been a rough rollercoaster ride but after 17 months, we’re all finally in a proper routine. . . . . #sleepdeprived#daddydaughtertime
The weather is shocking in London and I feel so miserable. So.... I’m flicking through old travelling photos. #americansamoa was really a beautiful, picturesque and untouched gem of an island that we discovered in the South Pacific. It was ruined by the tsunami in 2009 but the people and the place had such a positive and upbeat attitude. This photo makes me so happy when I think back to our time there. #memories ...

I know this is weird to be posting a dirty 💩 nappy but I’m currently testing out lots of different biodegradable and chemical free nappies and wipes for Esmé. She’s firstly got eczema so I need to be as kind to her skin as possible and also I was shocked to hear that most nappies and wet wipes take around 500 YEARS to degrade? 🤯I’m so conscious of the pollution we are causing to the environment so if I can help in anyway I can, I will. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to use cloth nappies, which are ...

This is me about to give one of my patients their #flujab. 💉💊I had mine this week so I’m covered for the next year. Did you know that most people who get the flu actually show NO symptoms whatsoever? They just carry the virus and potentially pass this onto a child, or someone who is immunocompromised. Children and adults die from the flu. It’s serious. So many people don’t get the flu jab yet it is so readily available at your local GP practice or pharmacy. I get the flu jab because I have Esmé, my parents are older so ...

Check out my new YouTube video! (Link in bio) it’s a brand review of @bellybandituk. I’m a complete leggings addict and pretty much lived in the #bdaleggings during pregnancy and then switched to the #mothertuckerleggings postpartum. The wrap was awesome to help shrink my deflated belly postpartum and gave me amazing back support. I can’t rave about this brand enough! Hope you all enjoy x (ps. I bought everything myself) . .

How difficult is it to take a selfie with this wriggly, mental, sassy girl?! I spend so much time taking photos of Esmé and daddy, Esmé and her grandparents, Esmé and anyone else that when I flick back there isn’t actually that many of me and my girl. Any other mummy’s feel that way? I’m going to make a conscious effort to take more 📷 x . . . #timeflies#esméefakim ...
