With the being mum project I want to focus on the reality of life for mums after pregnancy, birth and with a baby.
After working with, listening to and learning from so many mums over the last 20 years, I know how varied life can be for mums with a baby – with some common themes and unique experiences.
There are great moments and tough days, there are intense emotions and it can feel overwhelming.
By collecting as many stories as I can to, the project aims to:
- give you a voice, so you can anonymously share your experiences
- create an interactive space for mums to read other experiences and to share their own
- provide a greater understanding of what being as mum feels like
- ease the isolation
It’s a really personal time and I want to create something to reassure and normalise life being mum.
To take part, you can message me using the form below, answering as many questions as you can. Your stories will be kept anonymous so you can talk freely about your reality of being a mum.
It would be so helpful if you could share this post with other mums. And thank you so much!
North East Birth & Baby
where you can talk and read about pregnancy, birth and early parenting
I have worked with parents since 2002, providing a range of pregnancy, birth and postnatal sessions. My small practice is about good information, support and reassurance, along with a friendly welcome and a calm, knowledgeable approach.
If you are pregnant or you have a baby, please do take a wander around the website – it is packed with information and tips – and you can send me a message here to ask about any of my sessions.
