When I found out I was pregnant with my first child I immediately began researching ‘Pregnancy’ and other related subjects. I was completely overwhelmed with the sheer volume of what Google had to offer and didn’t know which way to turn. The most useful advice came from friends, family and professionals who had been through the same journey I had taken a seat on. A journey, that almost half a million people take each day.

My Baba aims to help women with their decisions; to help to cut through the great mass of information available and simplifying things that SHOULD be simple. Motherhood should be a joy….choosing a pram should not make you feel that you are on the edge of a breakdown!

On my daily travels I’ll be sharing whatever I find that I think works and things that I think don’t. I will target particular subjects with professionals and seek advice documenting my findings under ‘Experts’. I will also have guest bloggers, other mothers whose advice I have found helpful.

I am the mother of two young children and whilst I’m not professing to be an expert on motherhood or babies, everyday is part of the learning-curve and this blog will share what has worked for me in the stages I’ve hit so far.

I hope My Baba will help you in choosing the best for you and your baba.

I’m newly married, and newly 35 years old as of May 27th and very much in the ‘trying’ stage. Trying in both senses of the word! It’s been just over a year so far, with nothing happening yet. I’m hoping to be lucky enough to have a family in the not too distant future, but in the meantime, I’ll be busy exploring how to prepare your body for pregnancy, what foods we should be eating, and any technique going to lead to that positive pregnancy result! We’re also in the middle of the NHS wait for IVF, if it doesn’t happen naturally, and trying to figure out if private is something we can afford. I’m looking forward to having a family but I’m also aware that not everyone is lucky enough to be able to, and it shouldn’t be something that’s taken for granted.

My Baba is going to address issues relevant to women before pregnancy and motherhood as well as during and after, so no matter what stage you’re at, you’ll find the website a one-stop-shop for advice and information.

I feel both excited and privileged to be at the very heart of My Baba, a website that brings mothers and mothers-to-be together, so that between us we can benefit from the best tips, advice and support.

Welcome to My Baba.
