This blog is about my journey through the first few years of motherhood and the difficulties we experienced as a young, newly married couple and our continuing journey. Our first child was an unplanned pregnancy and I had PND after he was born. I started writing as a way to heal and deal with everything. As the years went by and the more women I spoke to, the more I realised there were others like me. So I am writing in the hope that what I have to say may in some way help someone else who has gone through similar circumstances. The name 12 Feet Big was chosen because we are a family of 6 and so there are 12 feet, but feet are also a unit of measurement so we could say that we are 12 feet big.
