An article I wrote about planning to undertake zuo yuezi (postpartum confinement) has made it into the November issue of Essence (page 19), a publication produced by the Australian Breastfeeding Association.
Essence was essential reading material for me before and after I had my first baby. After getting over my initial shock of seeing lots of pictures of boobs and babies, I realised how vital much of the information was to new mothers (and fathers). ‘One day when I am a real writer I might try and write an article for Essence,’ I told myself . So three years later, I am really delighted to see my first Essence article in print.
