About

**This is not a blog offering parenting advice** I am no Supermum. I am a real mum, an honest mum, a some days struggling mum, a some days owning it mum. I am every mum out there, taking each day as it comes, having no clue what I am doing whilst also knowing I am doing the best job I can. I want this blog to show the realistic, funny, scary and downright messy experience that is my version of motherhood.

I am one half of a same-sex relationship that created a little life in 2015. After two and a half years of fertility struggles (in which I was initially told I had 12 months of eggs left if I was lucky) consisting of two fresh IVF cycles that ended in miscarriages, one frozen cycle that didn’t take, no leftover embryos for future attempts, countless exploratory operations plus those that are required for each cycle, endless needles and tests and a rollercoaster of ups and downs (which now all seem like nothing more than a distant memory) my partner Alee and I did our third and final fresh IVF cycle and welcomed our rainbow baby boy, Oakland, in to this world.

Many people ask me about our story, about IVF, about having a biracial baby, about infertility, about being in a same-sex relationship, about chihuahuas, tattoos, hair dye and everything in between. I am hoping this blog can help answer some of these questions and create a platform for some interesting dialogue.

Thanks for reading and happy blogging!

  1. I do not want to ask about our story, about IVF, about having a biracial baby, about infertility, about being in a same-sex relationship, about chihuahuas, tattoos, hair dye and everything in between, The only question that comes to my mind, and I already know the answer, is, do you lovely ladies love each other and that little bundle of joy you are holding? As I said, I know the answer and that is ALL that matters. Just keep on loving.
