MEMORIES FROM DAISY’S CLEFT PALATE REPAIR: THIS COULD BE A TRIGGER SO PLEASE DON’T WATCH IF YOU FEEL THAT APPLIES TO YOU. I have sat on this video for a while. It took me a month to look at it, and a few days to even think about whether I wanted to post it. It’s very raw, and it’s hard to watch in parts, but I think sharing experiences – especially worst-case scenarios – will hopefully make it easier for future parents, like me, to cope with their baby’s upcoming surgery. I don’t have to share videos and memories like this, so please be kind and respectful in your comments, as I know most of you will be (because you are angels). If your baby is due their cleft repair surgery soon, just remember that the days are long but the years are short, and it will get better far sooner than you think. Lots of love and luck! xx

WHO AM I?
I’m 28, love carbs, rubbish 90’s music, Prosecco and baths without finding a bath toy stuck under my bum.
I have a little boy called Bill (born June 2012) and a little girl called Daisy (born April 2016).
I am, very recently, a full-time vlogger and blogger (the stuff dreams are made of), but I am also a trained journalist, former magazine editor, and content lead.
I’m also part of Channel Mum – which is really worth checking out if you’re a mama like me and want to find videos to make you laugh, cry, nod, or get advice. https://www.youtube.com/user/channelmum
I was a single mum, just me and Bill. But then I had a bit of a fairytale moment when I met Mark (he’s a bit lovely) and things are better than I could have hoped for now. Daisy was born with Stickler Syndrome, and a cleft palate like me. Her start has been rocky but she’ll be fine. She’s got a family who adore her after all.
I know that all mums are different in their own way, but I hope you enjoy seeing snippets of my life, all the same.
