Mental Mutha Meets: Interview
Set up by the amazing Natasha Bailie, Mental Mutha is a safe place to spend time when you’re feeling overwhelmed to realise that you’re nowhere near alone.
Reading other peoples stories from all walks of life gives me a sense of belonging and empathy that I may not have had or needed prior to becoming a mother.
The strength I find in knowing that it’s cool to have down days and that none of us are super human, keeps me going and Natasha’s work in providing a platform for us all to share has contributed to that.
I found Natasha through instagram via a friend. I took the plunge and got in touch quickly to see if she’d feature me in her series Mental Mutha Meets. She thankfully obliged and gave me the chance to share my story to spread the love and word for parents of children with special needs.

Raising Women: Podcast
If you aren’t familiar with Johanna Rossi of Raising Women, I recommend you look her up. But that’s ONLY if you like creative, brave and truthful humans that will inspire you and give you strength. Amen to that!
Johanna interviewed me for one of her podcasts after I got in touch with her via instagram a few months beforehand. I was pretty nervous as we started recording but she made me feel so at ease, I’m really happy with the result. It felt like one long conversation with someone I’d known for years, packed full of honesty and connection.
As we’ve chatted more since, Johanna has helped unlock something in me that’s given me confidence to let go of some more of those pesky gremlins I talk about and embrace my creativity. Have a listen and let me know what you think!

Avocado Meets: Interview
I recently had the pleasure of being interviewed by the lovely Alice of Avocado Magazine on all things motherhood and Reflux. I loved answering her questions as it made me stop and think about the important things in life that often pass me by as I busy-body about my normal duties. She covered everything from family, our home, my hair and of course Dotty and I have to say that I’m thrilled with the result and to have been featured at all!
Definitely check out the site, it’s a great place for parents to find relevant, funny and useful stuff as we muddle our way through figuring out how to raise tiny humans.
Mum in the Spotlight Article
When I launched Mama be Okay, I started contacting various different parent networks and bloggers in a bid to spread the word and share Dotty’s ongoing battle with Reflux in the hope that some might find our story helpful or comforting in some way.
To my absolute delight, a lovely lady at Families replied and asked if I’d like to be featured in an article on my local Watford site called Familes’.
Of course, I bit her arm off and quickly obliged in writing her a little piece on Dotty’s struggle and how I feel I’ve changed since becoming a mother. If you fancy a read, it’s now live! *squeals*
