This phase of my life has birthed a new me — who I love. I am more aware of my body, listen to signals of symptoms, and am open to more opportunities. I have found that nurses and midwives find it hard to say no — but that sometimes we need to, to prevent burnout, fatigue etc. I create boundaries between myself and those people and things that don’t serve me. Sometimes it is important to politely decline the agendas and expectations of others and to ask for support when you need it.
I want to share tips of menstrual cycle awareness and shift work with nurses and midwives. My goal is to grow a community of nurses and midwives to help us understand, love and respect ourselves.
Transition into a new version of yourself, conducive to your own needs, and into version 2.0 of yourself. I’m proof that you can be the creator of your own reality. Once you balance your hormones, like me, you will be inspired to do more and be more.
