Do you worry that your teenager lacks important life skills? Personally, I think that one of the positives to come out of COVID-19 and the subsequent lockdown period, has been a chance to build on a range of life skills with children of all ages.
Something I realised very quickly when I became a mama was that the role comes with worry and stress. Like, constant.

If you’ve been told your baby is back to back don’t panic. There is lots of time for the baby to turn before labour and if they don’t you can still do it.

Good luck and trust your body! It will all be worth it.
