We are mums who met while pregnant with our first babies.

Through thick and thin, we’re supporting each other through the firsts, ahhhs and arghs, and wanted to extend our support to others experiencing motherhood for the first, second or third (or more) time (though, to be fair, if you’re in the latter categories you probably know it all by now!).

Cue the birth of our new blog baby, Tales from the Mother Side.

We plan to cover everything that we have found helpful, in the hope that it will be useful to others.

There’ll be some serious stuff with a few funny stories mixed in, no doubt. And we’ll signpost to other resources we’ve found useful along the way.

But, more than anything, we want mums (and dads) out there to know: you’re not alone!
