About me

My name is Jamie and I am a mum of one living in the Cotswolds with my husband, our baby girl, and our two crazy dogs.

I write about my raw experience of motherhood and my life since becoming a mum. My daughter was born in September 2016 following a peaceful hypnobirth, but what followed for us was not peaceful at all. She had colic, a dairy allergy, and was a very poor sleeper. My mental health struggled and I felt a million miles away from the Instagrammable mother I had dreamed I would be. Motherhood is such a blessing, but not everyone prepares you for how tough the ride will be. That is what I try to encompass within my blog, a truthful account of my journey.

I am very passionate about supporting and empowering other women, especially mamas.

A bit about non-mum Jamie

I sometimes feel that I no longer exist away from my daughter and I have to re-ground myself and remember that I am still me, Jamie, and not just ‘mum’. I work as a Psychological Researcher and I love my job. I love to write and I love to read. I love Psychology and I am passionate about mental health, both learning about it and finding small ways to try and support people. I strive hard to make a difference, even if it is just a tiny one. I love countryside walks. I love good food. I love coffee. I love handbags. I am a bit obsessed with stationary. I could wittle on, but that is enough for now 😉
