‘Over horrendous, dark thoughts about losing my daughter, when our meditation playlist came on as it reminded me of when Noa was in NICU.

‘I cry because my hands and my arms are in excruciating pain from carpal tunnel syndrome. 

‘Nobody told me this is common for new Mums. Anyone else suffered from this? Pins and needles, numbness, shooting pains in hands and up my arms. I’ve got wrist splints on now though which are helping.’
