I began my blog in 2011, after realising that many of the women I was seeing were raising similar issues such as social isolation, high expectations of parenthood, relationship difficulties and traumatic birth experiences.
While I still blog when I can, I now use social media to raise awareness of common maternal mental health problems and mental wellness.
So far, I have been involved with the How Can I Help Campaign, My Moment Of Calm, the Alternative Advent - all of which bring together different mental health and wellness professionals to increase awareness of mental health difficulties and preventative strategies.
The V is for Village campaign (#iminyourvillage) aimed to demonstrate the enormous amount of support available for parents on social media - we now have over 600 members of a virtual parenting village all offering support to other one another!
My most recent Campaign has been Just One Thing - asking people from a range of backgrounds to tell me just one thing they would say to new parents and parents-to-be.
Social media platforms, while receiving bad press, often act as a source of tremendous support for parents and are a great way to see at the realities of parenthood. Come and find me on there, I look forward to chatting to you soon!
