Baby Born 2021 - Orla McConnon
At the beginning of this season Sinead spoke to Orla McConnon, who at the time was just a couple of weeks away from the birth of her first baby - it was an episode all about anticipation, excitement & expectation for what was around the corner.
Orla is back to take us through the reality of the labour, the birth and the first six weeks of motherhood.
We talk about stitches, boobs, pumps and pain, the unexpected moments and unexpected feelings.
We talk about the joy but also the sadness in realising that nothing will ever be the same again.
And we talk about the type of things that every mum should feel safe to talk about… that you can love your baby and the magic and the joy and still find it hard.
