This is a magazine based in the North East but it is for parents, grandparents and families everywhere.

“Janine is a talented writer, a passionate mother and she breaks stigmas and silences. This is vital with parenting.”

“I love her writing – it makes me feel less alone.”

“You always seem to write what I need to read!”

Welcome to Mother Cuppa.

It was created to inform, reassure, empower and boost parents during pregnancy, for birth, with a baby and throughout life with a young family.

Working with expectant and new parents is my passion – it has been a part of my life since 2002, almost as long as I have been a parent myself. This digital magazine provides a foundation of good knowledge, an experienced perspective and reassurance on all things pregnancy, birth and baby.

As parents, the core of it all is you. You are the person who is pregnant, you are the person who births and it is you who parents. You make the decisions, you feel the emotions, you live with the decisions, you get through the days and you try to do the right thing.

Mother Cuppa Magazine is also about your wellbeing, so you can develop and use effective coping strategies, feel less alone and able to put yourself at the centre of your care.

Mother Cuppa Magazine is about you

As a parent you will have your own needs, questions, successes and challenges – there are very few rights and wrongs and I don’t have an agenda on doing things in a particular way. And that’s why it’s about practical articles, guides, experiences, comment and stories.


There is also directory of recommended services, gifts and support for families, which is am about to expand.


And there is a private Facebook group for support, discussion, questions and content.

I hope you enjoy Mother Cuppa and I hope it is useful. Please do take a wander around the website and share with everyone you know who is pregnant or has a baby. You can ask questions, you can get involved by sharing your stories and your photos and you can follow the social media.
