It is often sighted that 1 in 4 new mothers find themselves isolated after childbirth, often the figures are even higher. Whatever way you look at it, post pregnancy is not an easy time and is fraught with challenges.

I hope to establish Stretchy Mummy as a place of support and sentiment that although our struggles may be different we all go through challenging times …and come out on the other end smiling (eventually).

We are all Stretchy Mummies!

Perhaps I should tell you about why I wanted to launch this blog?

I started writing when my marriage broke down. When I did not want to think about anything in my own life, I could not stop thinking about the information I wish I was able to find earlier. Surprised by the statics of how common my experience is and by extension of these other women who might find themselves in a similar situation and benefit from what I learnt.
