I’m not even going to try and soften the blow on this one. If you’re a mum, someone, somewhere, is going to judge you. Doesn’t matter what you do. Won’t matter how you care for or look after your baby. There will be someone who thinks you are doing it wrong and more bizarrely, thinks they have the right to comment. Just over a year ago I fell pregnant with baby number 3. And when I started to tell people, the inevitable judgement started. “What do you want 3 kids for?” “Surely you don’t want a c-section?” “Obviously you’ll...Read More

Everyone knows (literally everyone – even strangers in the street that have no kids of their own) that babies mean sleepless nights. If you’re lucky it will be a bit of broken sleep. If you’re unlucky then you’ll be walking round and round your lounge for most of the night… And yes, it can be tough. Tiring. Exhausting. Relentless. But it can also be amazing.

Let’s be honest, pregnancy can be tough. Childbirth is definitely tough. Recovery is tough. But getting your sex life back after a baby… That can be really tough! There’s lots of reasons why we don’t feel comfortable with the thought of sex after a baby.

It can get a little awkward explaining why we’re not in the mood for sex. Again. So with that in mind, here’s a list of 7 things we wish...Read More
We all know that when you have a baby life becomes hectic. Like, off the charts hectic. There’s bottles, nappies, feeds, naps, washing, entertaining, comforting and much much more. And that’s just for the baby. There’s also a house to run, chores to do, family or friends to see, mum/baby groups to attend and just general day to day stuff to see to.

Having a baby is wonderful and amazing but it can really throw a spanner into your relationship! I often hear mum’s complaining about their partners and it’s likely that at some point you’ll find yourself getting really annoyed with yours too. You might be annoyed with your partner for not helping out as much as you want. Perhaps you hate the fact that he doesn’t look after the baby in the way that you would. Or maybe it’s because you find it hard to watch your partner go off to work in the morning knowing that they are getting a break from...Read More
