I have just signed up for the #AMFWalkingChallenge2020 from 1st November to 14th November inspired by this incredible woman @aminata_conteh_biger, the CEO of the @aminatafoundation, and also my own birth story.

Six weeks after my second baby Lottie was born prematurely, I experienced a late post-partum haemorrhage and was rushed to hospital. I was there for a week, and in that time, the bleeding wouldn’t stop. I was given five blood transfusions and eventually, underwent a curette to remove the retained placenta. It was the scariest thing I've ever gone through and I'll never forget it. 

​If I was in Sierra Leone, I wouldn’t have survived. I wouldn’t have had the medical care I did.
