About

We are a group of women who went through the great adventures of pregnancy, child birth, and now motherhood together. Originally anonymously complaining about our swollen ankles, never-ending pregnancies, and heartburn, and sharing the great accomplishment of growing another human being inside you on reddit, we quickly bonded and grew into great friends. We’ve spent over a year learning together, experiencing motherhood, and leaning on each other for support… and we’d like to bring that knowledge and support to you! By no means are we experts, as we are for the most part first time mothers, but we have learned so much from each other, we think others can see the benefit too. There are several regular bloggers, but also do take submission (especially birth stories!)

We are building a village, and we want you to join in.
