I’m bringing bath time back.
A small move yes, but one that makes such a huge difference to my mindset.
When I became a Mum and long before (with 2 younger brothers) I realised that bath time could either be code for a mass swim fest or half an hour's peace...a little sanctuary in my tiny little house.
When Dan and I first lived together we had no bath.
When we rented the flat, it didn’t seem like a big deal – I fell in love with the quirky little space and thought a bath was an unnecessary addition.
That was until I became pregnant
I then became thoroughly obsessed with baths.
When I was about 6 months pregnant I was sent on some training in Manchester and all I could think about was the bath that would be in my hotel.
I packed the little bubble baths I had been saving for this type of opportunity and then I arrived...and there was no bath!
It literally felt like the end of the bloody world (I know that sounds ridiculous, but it did)
I rang Dan in tears...I know it sounds crazy that there were tears, but there were!
Bless him I know it was one of the many times that I sounded like a fucking lunatic.
He was patient though and reassured me that it would still be nice to sleep in a big bed.
But this was the thing though – I know I was a bit irrational with the tears, but I had terrible SPD in pregnancy and sleeping in any bed had become pretty hellish.
Fast forward a couple of months and water became a total game changer for me in labour.
I was like a fish
I spent a good portion of about 36 hours in water.
I didn’t know it was possible for your skin to look like it might fall off if you touched it.
The bath became my best friend from that day.
The bath and my breathing took me to a magical place and I can’t rave about this enough to Mama’s in my classes (more about that later this week)
My bath is not the bath of my dreams (yes I have a dream bath), but it seems to be the one place now where I can go, shut the door and my children just get it.
Helped along by Dan, they just know that it’s Mummy’s half an hour and it’s pure bliss.
So I’m bringing bath time back for this Mama at least once a week.
If you're growing a small human or in need of a little time away, your bath can become your best friend too!

Group Courses are running July, August and September.
