Congrats Danielle!

HMSA vlogger Danielle has had a beautiful baby girl! Congratulations!
Primrose will be 6 months this week!

Danielle gave us a few words about being a bendy mumma

‘As a first time Bendy Mumma things are more challenging. But thanks to the wider community we have found many ways to make the world work for us. We use several types of baby slings for;
When our little lady wants to be held and Mummy’s arms are tired.
When Mummy is in her wheelchair.
In the early days of nursing.

We go to baby swim classes once a week in a hydrotherapy pool, which allows us both to play whilst strengthening our muscles. We have to do things a little differently but so far I feel by adapting the situation we are able to do everything any other Mother and Daughter would be able to do. Being Parents is so rewarding, she is such a joy. It’s incredible to be able to share her with our family and friends and we just couldn’t imagine life without her.’

Primrose was very poorly at the start of her life so was not weighed until a week old. She weighed 8 pounds and 6oz and was 19 inches long. Altogether now…AWWW!
