‘Being a new Mum definitely comes with its challenges. I have moments that I completely love it and think I've got this Mum stuff down then comes the dreaded nights and I have moments that I doubt my capability to get through all the crying and tiredness.’ 💕💕💕💕. via @gemma_cheung - we can so relate, that’s motherhood summed up perfectly, an emotional roller coaster! Keep strong mamas, you’re all amazing 💕
