Spoiler Alert: Truly preparing for a baby to enter your world has pretty much zero to do with breathing techniques or packing the perfect hospital bag. Growing up in a large family, I had 1 older brother, 2 younger brothers, and a younger sister. But I never had an older sister. I always, always wanted an older sister! Girls Read More…

We’ve all wondered what it would be like- and some of us have actually experienced- the sheer shock of being told we’re expecting not one, but multiple babies! Below is Hazel’s detailed weekly account of carrying twins. Why do I love Hazel? She truly understands that here at Postparty, there is no such thing as T.M. Read More…

  I fed them everywhere: restaurants, supermarkets, pubs, cinemas, art galleries, parks. I never once had a negative remark or look. I never hid away but I equally didn’t do it in people’s faces.

  So you’ve had the baby, figured out which end is which, and completed the first few terrifying/exhilarating trips Outside-The-House without major incident (NB: a “poonami” doesn’t count as major. I have honestly dealt with three today already: one load of washing done, one to go…) and suddenly it dawns on you that this parenting Read More…

  When my daughter was two months old, my husband called from work and asked how I would feel about moving to London for six months to a year. I said “sure why not?” This either makes me very adventurous or slightly insane. Nothing was decided yet, but the possibility was there and we were Read More…

  When I made the decision to be a full-time stay at home mum, almost 5 years ago now, I decided that in order to best take care of myself and my child(ren), I would need to enlist some help a few hours/week. At first I used someone only 4 hours/week so that I could Read More…
