Let’s face it, becoming a parent can have an impact on friendships, often for the better but sometimes for worse.
Young mum Richelle, shares with us how becoming a parent impacted her friendships and how she was able to involve her friends in bringing up her son Zachary.
Here are the highlights from her vlog:
‘The people that I felt were helping me in my pregnancy, are still here to this day and I don’t really feel, I don’t regret letting go of the people that I did because if they really were my friend, they would help me through the experience what I was going through.’
‘If they are really really your friend whatever situation you’re in, they would stand by you and the 2 people that I have, have stood by me.’
