The whole birth process was a bit surreal. I thought I couldnt do it, but then I just did - so you can do it and instinct does just take over. She had some heart rate issues and you just switch into the mode of keeping your baby safe. I was so overwhelmed when she was here, I still cant believe she is ours and we made her.

Is it love or is it a heart problem? With the two often presenting with similar symptoms, we asked RBWH Cardiology registrar Dr Anish to share the top cardiac symptoms not to dismiss. 

❤️ Chest pain: Falling in and out of love can hurt, but if you have this, its straight to the ED!
❤️ Palpitations: When that special someone makes your heart skips a beat, its okay, but otherwise we need to see you. 
❤️ Shortness of breath: They might take your breath away, but if simple tasks like walking or going up stairs are doing that, you better get checked out.
❤️ Dizziness: Falling head over heels for someone can happen to the best of us, but if you are feeling dizzy, you might need to see the doctor.

My greatest loves are my family. I have two boys, and four grandchildren. I lost my husband eight years ago. I always thought I’d be the first to go, with all my health issues. On Valentines Day, I always got flowers or a gift or went out to dinner with the family. He would sometimes remember anniversaries on his own, but like most males needed a gentle reminder.
