Professional Blogs


I am lucky enough to write for a number of local businesses as a freelance blogger and content writer.

From starting this blog, I decided that in December 2017 whilst on maternity leave with my second son, I would quit my office job, and become self-employed to write on a part time basis.

I has always been a dream of mine to write for a living, and nearly 12 months on, and a lot of tears, frustration and hard work I can say that I do just that.

I have written a number of professional blogs of varying subjects from parent to property, photography to days out guides!

Below are a list of my professional blogs and articles.

I made the choice to go freelance whilst on Mat leave with Harlow.

5 things I want you to know about being a NICU Mum, this #nicuawarenessmonth

5 things I want you to know about being a NICU Mum, this #nicuawarenessmonth

In less than four days’ time, my eldest child will celebrate his fourth birthday.
Birthdays are always emotional especially when looking back, I class his birth as one of the most traumatic times of my life.
I recently wrote about how four years it still haunts me.
I didn’t just become a new mum, I became a NICU (Neo Natal Intensive Care Unit) Mum.
It was a title I didn’t ask for and we were part of a club we didn’t ask to join.
I have now spent nearly 4 years writing about our story on this blog, and for other publications and websites.
I have tried to raise awareness of the issues that affected us, I have tried to bring about change but ultimately and I hope I am right in saying I have helped other NICU Mum and CHD (Congenital Heart Defect) parents.
I have tried to process some of the emotions surrounding our NICU experience and use them to do something positive.
I had so much I wanted to say this #nicuawareness…

The time Fajita night resulted in having a baby in a bath.

Do you all remember my ever so optimistic natural birth plan? You can read it here.
However, spoiler alert, it didn’t happen.
What did happen was something no one was expecting.
Wednesday the 5th July… a mundane sort of day spent cleaning the house and doing the weekly shop. With Greg going back to work the next day I was determined to make sure everything was ready for when this baby arrived! I was three days off my due date and still hadn’t had one single sign this baby was imminently coming. I had been receiving messages from quite a few people asking if baby was here yet. I was getting fed up as everything I had tried to induce labour failed miserably and every morning for the last two weeks I woke up disappointed I wasn’t in labour! I gave up, walking didn’t help, pineapple made me sick and I was beginning to tire of the raspberry leaf tea. This baby was staying put.
In the evening I put Elijah bed, and we began to settle down for the evening. Fajitas had been served and consumed an…

The hopes and fears of a TOF Mum- part two Elijah’s check-up.

Yesterday, I spoke about how I felt navigating my way as a TOF (Tetralogy of Fallot) mum and the lack of real life online parenting stories there are to relate to about this. Click here to read part one.

Part two is below, and is a small glimpse into our world with Elijah’s annual check-up. I hope it helps others, and provides some insight into our world.
Every year for the rest of Elijah’s life will see him having to have an annual check up to monitor his heart. To check he is gaining weight, he is growing well, thriving and his heart is functioning. The things they look for now are if his murmurs are the same, if the regurgitating leak has worsened, the valve is bearing up and that they can see good blood flow.
The surgery Elijah had back in 2015 replaced one valve completely and in time this is likely to be replaced again, hence the annual checks. They do not get any easier and currently, my anxiety is at an all time high thanks to post-natal depression, so I was even more nervous abo…
