So I’m sitting here with my two week old son Sebastian. My life has suddenly changed dramatically, he is not too much work though he sleeps most of the night and I wake up well rested and with time to do some yoga before he demands his breakfast. But during the day he is a handful, luckily he loves sleeping in his pram so I can go off on long walks with him.
A lot of people ask me what is most extreme, base jumping or giving birth, and there is no doubt that giving birth beats it all! I will not go into too much detail in order not to scare off mums to be, but I can say as much as that the pain is beyond anything I have felt before. I was a bit unlucky though because they had to induce labour with loads of hormones, meaning I had hard core contractions for 29 hours……. It was so painful I couldn’t sit or lie down, I had to stand most of the time, and I would puke up even after one sip of water.
But the good thing is that the whole experience is just too farfetched and surreal so there is no way of relating to it after it is over, and when they put that little thing in your arms it is all forgotten:-) The emotions are overwhelming! No base jump has ever given me that much adrenaline lasting for so many days, nor so many happy hormones or wild emotions It beats everything I have done before and makes base jumping seem boring……almost
