Hi! I am Sarah, a wife to a very patient and supportive husband, and mum to 3 wonderful, cheeky children – Amelia, Ryan & Alaina. I love being a mum, and my children bring me huge amounts of joy, however my start to parenthood wasn’t what I expected.

I suffered with Maternal Mental Illness after the birth of my children, and now I am recovered I want to raise awareness and help others. This blog is where I will tell my story, share tips on living with and overcoming mental illness & raise awareness of mental health.

I am expanding my blog and so you will start to see posts about all sorts of things, including family, home, travel, food, beauty and everyday real life.

You can follow me about Mental Health & our peer support work on Twitter @LotusPetalPND or Facebook http://www.facebook.com/LotusPetalFamilySupport

Or  for more general life bits, follow me on Instagram @Sarah_Lotus_Petal or Twitter @Sarah__Rebecca_

If you feel you could be suffering from PND please speak to someone and see your GP or healthcare professional. You aren’t alone.IMG_9872
