Hannah used Instagram Stories to get real about sending Ava to daycare. The first-time mom warned her Instagram followers that her story could be triggering. Then Hannah revealed she had received many DMs about Ava’s first day at daycare.

“It was the hardest morning on this journey we call motherhood – dropping her off and leaving her with other people when I’m so used to having her with me 24-7,” Hannah shared.

Below Deck Mediterranean viewers know Hannah suffers from anxiety. Ava’s first day at daycare brought it on strong. Throw in a scary accident, and Hannah was certain she would have a panic attack.

“My anxiety was peaking that morning and I was in floods of tears when I left her. I managed to get myself together and convince myself it was the right thing to do! And then 2.5 hours later I get a call that she’s fallen off a step and is bleeding from the head,” she wrote.

The story continued with Hannah revealing she and fiancé Josh had done extensive research and had confidence in the daycare staff. However, that didn’t prevent Hannah from being scared out of her mind.

“It was one of the scariest drives of my life that morning. When your baby is hurt like that (I imagine especially for the first time) it feels like the walls are closing in. The amazing thing is Ava is so strong, she didn’t even cry when it happened! Kept playing until they saw blood in her hair! We are going back today because I know it’s the best thing for her – but gosh – being a mum is scary!” the former chief stew spilled.
