Hello, my name’s Laura and I am the creator of Broody to Baby and Beyond. Welcome to my very first Blog!
Firstly a little bit about me… I’m happily married apart from when my Husband breathes!! I’m a Mum to two gorgeous little girls aged 1 and 2 (I know, what was I thinking?!) and I work part time in a supermarket.
My road to parenthood wasn’t too bumpy but it wasn’t particularly smooth either. I experienced three miscarriages along the way, which hit me super hard. I’m a natural ‘fixer’ so I wanted answers and sought out all the support I could get along the way.
From the beginning I have been amazed by the variety of organisations I have needed to connect with as a Parent-To-Be and, of course, since becoming a Parent.
My personal journey, to name but a few, has included…
An Acupuncturist, an Endocrinologist, Private Sonographers, Counselors and a Sleep Consultant. I’ve completed Mini First Aid courses and composed my very first Will. I’ve attended Swimming, Gymnastic and Ballet lessons, Library sessions, Baby Sensory and Toddler classes.
I’m well aware that this list will grow indefinitely as my parenting journey continues and I welcome all of these services that help me along the way because without them I would be utterly lost!!!
What really annoys me is that I’ve found out about most of the above by word of mouth or randomly placed flyers. I’ve had to spend hours researching and reading patchy reviews in order to make my parenting decisions. Seriously, there has to be an easier way for Parents in the 21st Century! Parenthood is hard enough without relying on chance to connect you with the support and services that you need. So that’s why I’m putting everything I’ve got into Broody to Baby and Beyond.
Stay with me guys it’s going to be epic!
Much Love, Laura xxxxx
