I have recently started to think more about children and how difficult it currently is to be a child. Social Media and Reality TV has been the culture for which many young children have grown up in the midst of and sadly many children aspire to become sight becoming a reality TV star as their only career aspiration.
Expectant parents around the world should have the opportunity to enjoy the process of pregnancy and planning a life full of memories with their coming child. However, a growing health issue threatens to take away the hopes of a joyous childhood for both the parent and the newborn. Group B Strep (GBS), a form of bacterial meningitis, affects two newborn children each day in the UK, and on average, one child per week dies from the infection. GBS represents the most common serious health condition among new babies, and without early detection and steps for prevention, the infection could result in life-altering or fatal consequences.
Taking care of a baby is no joke and as the years pass by it gets more and more difficult. In the olden times, women would dedicate their whole life for their family. Since their birth to their death they would be in the constant back and forth of their family. But times have changed and so have women. Women have stepped out of their homes and now are conquering the world. Needn’t mention women face a lot more difficulty as compared to men? And things get more difficult when responsibility increases and one chooses to have a child. Yes, a child! So how could one ease their responsibilities after having children? Is there any help for such women or parents?

I would like to share with you my experience of motherhood. I became a mother to a beautiful boy on the 15th of October 2016. I am grateful to God that he has decided to bless me with such a gift. I am 28 years old—and this is my first child. It was my desire to have kids; but I just didn’t know when it was going to happen. The moment I stopped thinking about it—I was pregnant and the next thing I knew this bundle of joy was handed into my arms.
In my opinion, being a mother in today’s day and age has more pressures than ever before. With the rise of social media platforms and endless images of how a woman’s body ‘SHOULD’ look. There comes with that the pressure of the ‘snap back’– which is the space of time between having your baby and getting your body back to where it was before you became pregnant. There is also the stress factor of still looking and dressing well despite taking care of another life. To be honest, when you are a new mother this is even more difficult because this is of course a new experience for you. I had imagined what it would be like to become a mother, but I never realised how challenging the physical elements would be.
