My biggest fear

I started my career in PR just over 10 years ago and it has been a whirlwind from start to finish. I progressed quickly and I worked incredibly hard. Early on in my career, when I worked in London, I could end up doing 12 hour days, staying later in the office well after everyone... Continue Reading →

Don’t be a dummy, trust your instincts

I’m so relieved to read this recent post by the blogger ‘Admissions of a working Mother’ on her blog: http://admissionsofaworkingmother.com/no-child-of-mine-will-ever-have-a-dummy  I totally agree with this. Before I became a parent I was adamant I wouldn’t use a dummy, but now (after seeing the calming effect sucking on something or rather anything has on Amelia) I... Continue Reading →

Would you take The Pregnancy Pause? 

I recently came across a US campaign called The Pregnancy Pause. I had heard of this term before whilst speaking to one of my clients about maternity leave rights, but I didn’t know it was an actual movement. In a nutshell, it’s a campaign to help new mums explain their baby induced hiatus to prospective... Continue Reading →

Feeling the burn

For those of you who know me well, you will know that I just love doing exercise. Whether that be running, dancing, skiing or going to the gym, I adore it.

“Look mum, no hands”

I’m two weeks into this new mummy/ baby journey and still learning by the day. And gosh there is a lot to learn…. One thing I have had to learn very quickly is how to breastfeed and use my hands at the same time. Seems simple right? WRONG. When I saw people on TV feeding,... Continue Reading →

Just being mum (published in PR Week)

My opinion article recently published in PR Week When people ask me about whether I'm excited about having a baby I always respond “yes, absolutely” (well that's what they want to hear and because, of course, it is true). However what I don't tell them about is the very next feeling that hits me when they... Continue Reading →

Guest Blog from Clare, aged 31, living in London.

Clare is currently off on maternity leave having just had a new baby boy. I have always known that the job I do doesn't define me as a person.  Of course, it has been a large part of my life since I graduated but it never defined who I was. My job was just that,... Continue Reading →
