I knew I was pregnant when
The 5th pregnancy test was positive. I was obsessed, as I'd recently gone through a miscarriage so I was constantly checking even before it was likely to show up.
My favourite part of pregnancy was
The worst was
" This was the kind of birth that made me crave more babies... "
To prepare for birth, I
Created an ambient playlist with my husband (he's an audio engineer with great taste),
discovered Hynpobirthing, (this changed my life), started regular perineal massage and completely detached from Social Media to step into the present.
Looking back, I feel my birth was
3 words to describe my journey from maiden to mother are
The biggest challenge has been
Time & the inability to be in many places at once. My kids both need me at the same time, and I was not prepared for how difficult this would be both physically and mentally.
" I was not prepared for how difficult this would be both physically and mentally "
If I could turn back time I would have
Nothing. I wouldn't change a thing.
The thing I love most about motherhood is
The insurmountable love, it is just unfathomable until you're in it.

Creating, as much as I possibly can. Water, in all forms: the ocean, the bath, the shower, drinking water, crying, rain. Solitude & connection - a dichotomy, but it's true.
My one piece of wisdom to share would be

WHO IS AMY?
Becoming a mother completely rocked my world. The identity shift was something I was not at all prepared for. Little did I know, birthing that baby would become the fire for my most productive, determined & purpose-led self. It sparked a huge fire in me that completely flipped my perspective of life and work on its head. Motherhood was the turning point in my life. It gave me the confidence to take huge risks, quit my job, and throw myself into freelance business so that I could create a working life that functions around the needs of my children, rather than the other way around. I've realized now that motherhood & my creative work are intrinsically linked, each represents a large piece of my identity and both of these parts of me hold great meaning & purpose.
