"Do You Take Your Health For Granted? It’s fair to say I lost pretty much all and any inhibitions during labour.
Wanting my babies born safe and healthy took precedence over any embarrassment I may have felt being examined, prodded and poked, yet when it comes to my own health I’m ridiculously embarrassed at the thought of any procedure where things might get…personal.
So, when I a letter arrived inviting me for my cervical screening test back in early December I put it off.
I convinced myself with pitiful excuses that I was too busy, Christmas was coming up, school activities to be attended and there was housework to be done.
Basically, anything I could possibly think up to delay making the appointment, I did."
