I have been receiving some lovely emails and Facebook messages from people wanting to take part in this project, which is just wonderful. I have also had offers of support from both the Australian Breastfeeding Association and MS Australia :)
Many are asking - what can we do?
At this stage, what I would like most is to hear YOUR story of MS and motherhood, so that I can start to build on the issues we face. But I don't want to keep all that information hidden until the book finally eventuates, so I would like to invite you to put your experience into words and share that with mothers and others who visit this site. If you have already contacted me, I will be in touch to seek permission to share your story. If you haven't already sent it to me, you can do so easily by following the instructions in the Tell your story tab (above).
Stories will be added as they are received, so hopefully we will build a library of individual experiences that will help others as they begin their own journey.
I am also planning a questionnaire to gather the shared experience and establish what the common issues are. So, if you haven't subscribed to this blog or the Facebook group, check back often to see what's new!
