Alice's Mum's Story

“I'm a singer, pianist, musical director and mum to the wonderful Alice, now two years old. I'm also totally blind, For the first year of little Alice's life, I really struggled. It started with not being able to breastfeed, and spiraled out of control from there. I lost all my confidence in myself and my ability to care for my daughter; I felt trapped and alone; my house became like a prison, but I was too scared to go out in case something happened to Alice. I had to force myself to get up in the mornings, and I had to work really hard to get out the house.
