Just a Mamma momspiration May Mothers Day giveaway

We started our May #momspiration series with 5 gorgeous #girlmoms, last week we featured some cool #boymoms and today I need to say thank you to a few #mombosses with the biggest hearts in the world!

May 11, 2018

Okay mamas let get #real, #authentic, #honest, #candid… all those hashtags doing the rounds all over social media – constantly challenging us to prove ourselves and our worth. Let’s talk about the elusive “super mom”. The woman who does it all, has it all, with the perfect family and husband of the year. The mama you look up to. She inspires you, but at the same time you secretly loathe her and judge her, hoping she will “slip up” giving…

#mombodsunited: Week 1

January 10, 2018

After posting this  #mombodsunited picture to Instagram last week I couldn’t believe the incredible response I got from so many like-minded mamas. Mama tired of the negativity, criticism and constant shaming associated with our postpartum bodies. Bodies that should be celebrated for the amazing job of childbearing and now also child-caring. Instead however we stay behind the camera, feeling bad and ashamed of the way we look, hiding ourselves (and our feelings) from the world and at times really beating…

Let’s be honest, breastfeeding is not easy and it doesn’t always come naturally. Sure, my second and third go was a breeze but round 1 was pretty much a 12 week nightmare! Cracked nipples – who even knew your nipples could crack? – non-stop bleeding, constant pain and discomfort, 3 rounds of mastitis, one hell of an allergic reaction to nipple creams and an unfortunate encounter with Lennon “Staaldruppels”, had me grinding my teeth and crying uncontrollably every 2 hours (feeding…

Pregnancy Bucket list for Mama.

November 6, 2017

Pregnancy. What a special time.  A time to cherish, enjoy, remember… Yes, we’ve all heard it over-and-over again and although it’s true, this is not always easily done. Work, having other little ones, feeling less than “glowing”… all of these things can make it a little difficult to stop and enjoy these 9 months of growing another human. Now, post baby number 3, I’m looking back at all our pregnancies and I’ve come up with a little “pregnancy bucket list”…

The birth of Ava Loïs

September 6, 2017

Today our Ava is two months old. I celebrate by sharing her birth story. It took me a while to post because finding words to describe the emotions and experience of that day is impossible, but I’ll try my best. So here goes… Being my 3rd Caesarean section you’d think I’d be calm, knowing what to expect and ready for the day. This however was not the case. I felt more nervous and anxious than ever before. The knowledge of…
