How it all started

MumsAloud started off with a few friends who were new to parenting struggling with similar issues and asking real questions like how do i bath a new born?, how do i get enough sleep? why won’t my child stop crying for no reason? We started with black berry group chats so mothers could share ideas with other mums and learn too. As the group grew we expanded from sharing ideas about motherhood to other real issues mothers are faced with around relationships, career, aspirations, coping with the In-laws, hormonal swings, birthday gifts fading away, forgotten anniversary dates and so much more.

 

It didn’t stop there. We didn’t want to be a group of bitter women who just complained about everything.

 

There was an eagerness to learn, grow, share ideas and encourage each other. There was a need also to answer the big question – how do we find a balance? How can we combine all our roles without losing ourselves in it. The challenge of keeping a balanced life takes its toll on us and we just seem not to be able to hold it altogether. its not easy at all. How do we still enjoy our space, career, life’s vision while remaining a good mum, great wife, accommodating sister in-law and all the things that this new and varied titles demands. All these questions and more

 

And then MumsAloud was officially born…..

 

So if you fit into this vision you are welcome onboard, if you want answers you are welcome, if you don’t fit but can relate you are also welcome, if you are a man and you are thinking “ What are these women up to” you are also welcome.
