#Beingamother project

What does it mean to be a mother? Before becoming a mum, we have all sorts of expectations as to what being a mother will look and feel like – the reality can often be much different from those initial thoughts and dreams.

That’s why I’ve created the #beingamother project, which will see some of my favourite bloggers sharing a guest post on what being a mother – the good, the bad, the beautiful and the ugly – means to them.

If you would like to take part in the #beingamother project, please get in touch at motherhoodtherealdeal AT gmail DOT com with your guest post submission on what being a mother means to you. It can be as long or short as you like, and written in any style, so long as we hear your voice.
