Unspoken Conversations are the topics that are often swept under the carpet, whispered amongst the closest of friends and bitched about by many. I want to create awareness about difficult things that people face in life; grief, mental health, money, illnesses, family troubles, relationship difficulties and putting yourself first. I want to tell the truth about things that really matter.

Making babies


Do we take the art of creating a human life for granted?

We spend so much time during our younger years perfecting the art of baby making, while, fingers crossed, stopping the little swimmers from winning their race, but in the back of our minds, we hope that when the race is ready to be won, all of our practising will make a perfect baby.

Isn't the equation for making a baby easy? You stick the doodle in, you stick the doodle out, you stick the doodle in and you shake it all about? Then, 9 months later, out pops a popping, spewing, crying, sleeping, adorable bundle of joy that has miracously adapted half of your gene pool, and thank god, half of your partners too?


As I get older I'm realising that putting a bun in the oven, getting knocked up, up the duff or whatever you want to call it, can often take a lot longer then we'd expect, and can often need some intervention. The scary thing - this is all a whole lot more common then you'd think.

Could you imagine just how tricky it must be when you're ready but nothing is happening down there in that department?

I couldn't.

It's definitely made me think twice about asking someone who has been married for a couple of years about when their baby is due, or about asking about baby number 2,3 or 4...I guess you just never know what they might be going through.


I guess I just wanted to point out in this post that creating a baby really is a miracle, and something that we should not take for granted. But, if it happens to take a little longer or need a little help along the way, try to go easy on yourself; one day your miracle will happen, and when it does, you'll be forever grateful.

So here's to the miracle that creating a life is!

To baby making!

Do you know of someone who is struggling to conceive? Have you had difficulty making a baby? What advice would you give to others in the same situation?

Look after yourself and those around you,
