Support & Resources

As someone who struggled for 6 years with post-natal depression after my twins were born, I am passionate about the mental well-being of mums who find themselves facing a life they never expected.

Back then, I felt so incredibly overwhelmed by guilt, grief, and anger.

I had no-one to turn to who really understood and could reassure or support me.

I doubted that I was up to the task of being the mother my son needed. Despite smiling on the outside, I felt broken.

Since my breakdown in 2010, I have worked through the feelings which were consuming me, I have met an incredible community of parents to children with various needs who understand my world in a way that even my family struggle to and I know now that I was always the mum my boy needs and deserves.

If you would like support along your own journey, please subscribe to my newsletter in the first instance. Its short and to the point (much like me) but I hope that it helps other mums to know that they are not alone or the only one feeling or thinking a certain way.
