Mommy Belly

I am a fresh mommy. In October 2019 I gave birth to my baby girl Xara Nadia. Everything that happened during my pregnancy, as well as what came after childbirth changed me completely (Xara was prenatally diagnosed with esophageal atresia).

With Xara’s birth, a new me was born as well. That change did not happen overnight. It was a process that went on. For the first three months, when Xara was in the hospital, I felt only sadness and helplessness. When we finally came home, getting used to my new role as a mother was not easy. There was crying especially when I was exhausted. And I believe that it would be twice as difficult if I didn’t have a great husband beside me who fits perfectly in his father’s role.

Moreover, when I became a mom my imagination is given a new shape, a new theme for reflection, design, and creativity. So I’ve decided to share my thoughts and experiences as a fresh mommy. All the ups and downs, challenges and adventures, doubts, ideas and designs that came with this role of a lifetime and changed me as a person forever.
Expect all of this and much more within my Mommy Belly page.
