WELCOME TO MOM STORIES

As mums, we know it’s sometimes good to share your story.  Whether you need advice, want a pat on the back or just need to get it out, it’s always good to share it in a safe place with other mums just like you.  And mums love to read stories from other mums too – it helps to hear that another mum had a birth just like you, is going through a similar pregnancy or is dealing with the same toddler (or teenage) issues as you!

Every month, we’ll share some of the most popular MoM Stories by posting them on our facebook page and on our MoM blog.

HOW DO I SHARE MY STORY?

Sharing your story is easy.  Simply click on POST YOUR STORY below and add your story. Remember to add a title and you’ll also earn 15 MoM Rewards Points when you post your story.
