As the world becomes more fragmented, community life becomes stagnant, cities become taller, and families become smaller, as new mums, we find ourselves lost. Thrown into a sea of anxious Google searches and emotionally strung community forums, highly targeted online ads for useless baby products, pressure from the media (and other women) to breastfeed, and lack of support from businesses on paternity leave, how do we even cope?
This site started because a lonely mum was having a hard time accepting her new life and she wanted to create a space for new mums who need support.
We don’t have it easy. The media, other women, our parents, fill our heads with unrealistic expectations of becoming a mum. “Having a baby is the most wonderful thing in the world!”
But it isn’t, really. In one way it fills our hearts with happiness and love, in other ways it makes us feel inept and frankly, insane. The emotional reality of it all is quite mixed.
Happy New Mum is the real experience, from real mums. We are here to help.
A group of mums sharing their experiences on pregnancy, post-birth, breastfeeding, work-life balance, and more.
