Sharing my story to offer hope and support to those going through similar turmoil or to those who maybe have had their happy ending too.

I'm a very fortunate Mum of three who wants to share her story as to how I got to this stage in my life. I’m writing this and sharing my story to offer hope, help and support to those who might be going through similar turmoil or to those who maybe have had their happy ending too. I want to bring together those who want to share and those who just want to read. You’re not on own and yes, it may not be something people like to talk about openly, but what I learned very quickly is that there aren’t any rules, there aren’t any hard and fast guarantees and you do what you can and what need to do to wake up every morning and stay focused on your happily ever after.

Loneliness in Motherhood

A happy mother will find her happy medium and in doing so avoid becoming lonely. Everybody will have a different idea of what this is, but as long as they reach this goal, they are less at risk of becoming lonely.

Why Being a Mummy Really is the Best Job in the World

Every day is different, brings with it new challenges, as well as happy memories and laughter. Each child is very different, with their own little personalities. It's funny to see bits of myself and my husband in each of them.

Diagnosis: Infertility

More needs to be done to educate people in fertility matters. By this I mean that when trying for a baby it is not as simple as making the decision, doing the deed, and nine months later your baby arrives.

A Positive Spin on Surrogacy

I have read a few negative articles in the press recently regarding surrogacy. Allow me to tell you my story, in the hope of leaving you with a fuller heart. Infertility is still a fairly taboo topic. Yet the reality is that many people need help to have a baby. It is a serious issue, and it was for me too.

Calling All Men

It can also, dare I say, be quite frustrating for the woman in the relationship to do all the talking. Yes, it's our bodies going through most of the testing, poking and prodding, but it takes two to make a baby. Men aren't just there to provide the goods! As a woman, I need my other half to talk to me, communicate his feelings to me.
