Geraldine Walsh

Geraldine Walsh is a freelance writer, journalist and awardwinning blogger. This is an excerpt from her blog “Over Heaven’s Hill” where she shares her journey of becoming Momma Bear and finding her way out of postnatal anxiety.

Allegra crept up to me one afternoon and wrapped her dainty arms around my legs and hugged me hard. The little mite, in her tiny years and few short feet, has grown up so much but still so desperately needs her Momma’s hugs. And I hope she always will. In that instant, as her arms squeezed me tight, I thought, dammit I needed that. I needed that hug. And I also thought, dammit I’m the Mum.
