Leading up to my son’s birth, was exhausting, I felt like I was losing myself. My belly so swollen with my 11 lb child, I could barely walk and certainly could not see my feet. The moment my water broke, I got out of bed and started the process for preparing to leave for the hospital for my second child’s birth. I packed my belongings, made a music play list and then I took a shower, blow-dried and hot-rolled my hair.
Yes, I hot rolled my hair.
I was excited about becoming a mom to my son but I was also eager to feel like I was myself again, put on normal shoes, and wear something new. Doing my hair and wearing new clothes wasn’t for anyone else-it was just for me, it made me happy.
When the news the royal baby had arrived, women around the globe were quick to comment on her appearance and use their own birth experience as an expectation for how the Duchess had experienced her birth.
