Welcome to our blog! This site is the collaborative effort between Tánia Wilson and Louise Viljoen – two South African mums whom have had our own unique experiences with pregnancy, birth and parenting and just love sharing it with everybody else! I suppose it helps that we also love writing both fiction and non-fiction alike, and we hope to amuse and inspire you as you journey through our blog.
The purpose of this site serves as a guide, inspiration, preparation or enlightenment for new mums-to-be, as well as aiming to be a support or community atmosphere where mums who have gone through the motions of parenting can share their experiences and advice. We will post volunteered birth stories from (what we hope to be) all over the world as well as a Q & A page regarding various topics. If you have a pregnancy or birth story or a funny anecdote about that time your 2 year old laid down on the floor right in the busiest part of the shopping centre and pretended to go to sleep because she didn’t want to hold your hand and left you red-faced with embarrassment, please share it with us!
We also have a fiction category where mums that write their own fairy tales and bedtime stories or any other genre (apart from erotica or occult fiction) can have it published on the site and full credit will be given to any and all stories submitted.
We would also love for you to share your belly pictures, maternity photos and moments where siblings meet baby for the first time with us so please get in touch!
Although we fully understand if you do not want to submit any pictures of your baby, we ask that those mums who are willing, will include photos of their baby along with their length & weight (if known) as well as their full birth name and date of birth which will be used as the headline for your story.
We look forward to hearing from you and we hope that you enjoy our blog!
Tánia & Louise
