Emily Tredget

Mum, Founder of MummyLinks and Mental Health Campaigner

Mum of one, Emily founded MummyLinks - the safe place to meet mums locally - after suffering loneliness and Post Natal Depression. Before motherhood Emily studied at Oxford University, worked as a Strategy Consultant, and then spent nearly 5 years in Supply Chain Management at innocent drinks. But she found the transition from career girl to motherhood very difficult - particularly feeling lonely. So she is now passionate about helping all mums to create a great support network locally to them. MummyLinks helps mums meet locally for ad-hoc playdates, safely - it is invite/approval only. Emily is also an advocate for maternal mental health, working tirelessly to reduce the stigma and raise awareness. She launched the #ShoutieSelfie campaign in May 2017 which was a great success. She has also created a number of videos including the brutally honest: www.bit.ly/IDIDNTLOVEHIM If you would like to join the MummyLinks community please ask to join the facebook group to hear more: www.facebook.com/groups/MummyLinks

Five Mum Hacks For An Easier Life

This may be obvious to you - it's something I've always done even before kids, but having spoken to a family member who has NEVER batch cooked and frozen I thought I'd share it! There are some great kid friendly meals that works very well. Our favourites are bolognese, chicken casserole, chilli, curry and even easier - buying frozen fish fillets that quickly microwave!

Five Things To Do With Your Child In The 48 Hours After A Bug

As summer turns to autumn the lovely green trees turn red and brown...but unfortunately at some point in this season our lovely children go from a sun-kissed glow to pale and green. It's bug time people! I'm not talking the crusty noses and coughs. I'm talking stomach bugs. Horrible, icky, stomach bugs.

Five Reasons You Need Mum Friends

Not stuck at work an hours commute away. They can pop round at a moment's notice (well maybe not quite a moment - it's not easy getting a baby out at lightning speed!) So when your baby has pooed through ALL your nappies in one morning, they can drop some spares rounds.

Can Loneliness Lead To Post Natal Depression?

I hated picturing a mum like I was, stuck at home feeling like she just wants to get out and have some adult conversation - but with nobody local to meet. Let's face it, when you aren't feeling confident some of those baby classes just make it worse! But meeting a fellow mum for a coffee, or soft play, or at the park. That might just be manageable.
