I knew very well that I couldn’t cure her skin condition, but as I lay there recovering, I resolved to find a solution that would naturally soothe her skin while keeping it hydrated and well-nourished.
If I had not been pregnant, they would not have discovered a murmur, would not have requested an MRI and we would never had known that I had a life-threatening heart condition. I am so very grateful to our wonderful National Health Service.
At that moment, I was in shock! Feeling physically sick. Everything around me seemed to be moving in slow motion. All of a sudden, my head was spinning, and now my initial fears were giving way to emotional panic.
Learning of my pregnancy created a preoccupation in my mind. I instinctively worried about the health of my baby and wanted to make sure everything I put on my skin, hair, and body was beneficial and safe for the little one. This instinct outwardly manifested itself in a new desire to read and understand the impact of all the ingredients in both the cosmetic products I used and foods I consumed.
