Especially when it comes to parenting a newborn.
Now with two older kids – Hudson (six) and Archer (three), Jules said that she struggled with something common to a lot of new mums – the immense exhaustion and sleep deprivation that comes with looking after a mini human that is completely dependent on you.
Speaking to 9Honey, she said that period in her life was harder than she “ever anticipated or imagined it would be.”
“I would always be exhausted,” she said. “I did that transition into motherhood badly, but I can talk about it more honestly now. At the time, I couldn’t understand what just happened to my life.”
She would also catch herself comparing herself to other new mums who seemingly loved the process.
“I’d see some mums cradling their newborns and I’d sit there, running on an hour of sleep, thinking, ‘I’m not good at this’,” she said.
