#MummiesTime with Yixin (@snnngorious)
🔥 We understand that balancing work and family time can be tricky. This is why we have decided to interview our LB mummies to share their personal experiences!

#MummiesTime is a series that features mummies from different walks of life, sharing their tips on how to have me-time in this fast-paced society. We also ask them for tips, advices and stories to encourage new mummies on their parenting journey.

In conjunction with International Women's Day, we'll be kick-starting our #MummiesTime series with the gorgeous mummy, Yixin, (@snnngorious)! She's a part-time social media manager with an adorable 10-month old daughter. 👧

How has being a mum changed your life? What’s the best part about being a mum?

It has changed drastically. I guess, I'm much more responsible and wary of time and schedule now! And although you get busier, I guess the best part is to be able to see how my little Riley grow so much! And especially how she giggles when I tickle her. 

In this fast paced-society, could you share with us a tip on how you find your “me-time”!

After baby sleeps! I mask my hair, face, feet and hands! Just sitting there relaxing is the best thing ever. Plus, my husband is present if Riley cries! 🤣😂

Could you share with us a short snippet of your birth story/stories?

24 hours in the delivery suite is no joke. I had to go with inducing the labour process as my amniotic fluid was borderline low! However, my gynaecologist didn't warn me that inducing labour would cause a much painful contraction! 😓

So, I pretty much endured 9 hours of pain without epidural and yet I was only 1cm dilated. In the end, I decided to go ahead with epidural as I still very much believe in natural birth. I told my gynaecologist that I would wait! 

And yes, so I slept in till 11 AM to finally be dilated to 8cm and popped Riley out at 1 PM! In between, my husband was just playing with the phone while I slept. I didn't even touched my phone as I knew I needed the energy to push!
🤣 The midwife was so shocked when I pushed her out in less than 10 mins. 😂

Tell us something interesting about your child/children!

When she's happy, she opens her mouth so wide that she looks like she is trying to bite you. 😍

Any piece of advice for new mums/mums-to-be?

Just do what you feel is right. A mum's instinct is always right. Remember, if you really need help, do reach out to your friends. I'm very sure they're going to be there for you!
