Motherhood Musings

From one parent to another, this page is a collection of blog posts related to parenting. I’m not pitching myself as an expert with qualifications, but I do like to research things thoroughly, follow medical advice and take a rather pragmatic approach. Search engines and online forums can be your worst enemy when you’re looking for a little advice or reassurance. A simple question can throw up conflicting opinions and end up making you feel inferior to all the internet moms who seem to be getting everything right.

I existed on this planet for thirty years before becoming a parent and I have so much more to offer than to review baby products like nappies. It seems crazy to think that mummy bloggers such as myself are often overlooked when it comes to working with make up, fashion and wine brands – We don’t become invisible as soon as we give birth, our priorities change and we might have less disposable income but this is why it’s more important than ever for women and mothers to be represented on social media. This probably isn’t the most serious challenge facing women right now but its one worth mentioning. This journey so far has been unusual for me – anyone who has met me in “real life” or had the experience of encountering me in a group chat knows that I am not backwards in coming forwards about things. This new space on my blog is where I will collate my random thoughts about anything and everything.
