mom holding baby above head

Mama in Progress is all about sharing real experiences and advice from real people to help others in their parenting journey from the very beginning. My aim is that it will be full of advice, tips and tricks, stories and more to help you along from pregnant to parent and beyond.

I’m a mom to 3 girls, aged 5, 3 and 1. Parenting is HARD. Just when you think you’ve got something cracked, everything changes on you and what was working, doesn’t. Often I feel like I’m just ‘playing house’ and actually don’t have a clue what I’m doing! 

It’s easy to think there are all these ‘perfect parents’ out there who have it all together and know exactly what they’re doing. This is just not true. Not everyone will be running around with old cheerios in their purse wondering if they’ve managed to totally get rid of the smell of baby sick from their hair, but I’d bet we’ve all been, or will be, some version of there!

Whatever stage we’re at, whether that’s planning for a baby, struggling to conceive, pregnant or already a parent of 10, we’re all still ‘Mama’s in progress’.
