It would be nice if Jenna or Katie can suggest where to look for a doula? And what's the usual pricing range.

I can relate so much to this, I never asked for help as I didn't want ppl to think I was failing!

find it hard to make new mum friends/friends, I make an effort and put myself out there and make an effort to meet people but I find I'm always rejected and I don't know why, it makes me feel that there is something wrong with and gives me so much soical anxiety. I'm also worried that my son will struggle to make friends in the future because I don't really have any. What can I do? Thanks

I put sooo much pressure on myself to breastfeed and my baby had an undiagnosed tongue tie! I was in sooo much pain nd didn't look after myself. Lunch always went out the window which didn't help with feeding. Always comparing myself to others!

I struggled with a lot emergency c section, tongue tied and PND I worried this will all flare up with a second child also get such high anxiety out shopping if she throws a tantrum plus it’s hard to juggle my time with my partner he works so long hours and I want to give him his breaks but I never find an Opportunity to get out do you think it’s improves when they get older ??

Hi I have had my baby through the whole lockdown and hasn't been able to socialize. I was struggling with breastfeeding I did it for 6 weeks and stopped which I still feel like I should of carried on. Other thing is that I feel we have missed out on services such as baby classes and just talking to other mums about the journey. I feel I will come out of this less independent than I was before.

it's hard as I feel we are missing the 'normal' experience and feeling lonely with the lockdown as Briana was born first week of lockdown. I was isolating beforehand due to asthma. Am struggling with breastfeeding this week as she's fussing on the breast quite badly and don't really know where to go as had no help medically either xx
