Advert: The Mummy Club


My name's Christie, I'm a mum of two girls aged 5 and 3. 
I have struggled over the years with both Post-Natal depression and anxiety and in the early days I feel these conditions fed on the fact that I felt so alone. 

It’s crazy really all of a sudden I had a constant companion who wanted to be with me every second of the day (and night) and yet for some reason I had never felt more alone. 

I had a loving partner and friends and family around me but I felt miles away from all of them. Post-natal depression had managed to convince me that I was completely failing at motherhood and terrified of anybody agreeing with this, I stopped having real conversations with people.  

Over the years it’s been great to see lots of mums on the internet honestly sharing their experiences and it now feels far less taboo to say ‘you know what, I’m finding it really hard to cherish every moment.’ Brave people like ‘The Unmumsy Mum’ and ‘Hurrah for Gin’ even helped me find my long lost sense of humour! 

It was such a great feeling to be able to laugh at some of the most (literally), hair-pulling moments rather than to feel ashamed and dwell on my ‘failures’.  

This lead me to realise I wasn’t on my own at all in fact I had become a part of a very special club.

I guess it was because of the above that The Mummy Club was born. I realised it would’ve been quite nice to receive something that reminded me that I wasn't as alone as I felt. 
As well as stories from mums who just 'get it' and a few items that would guarantee to make me smile and help me take a little time out for me. 
The Mummy Club Boxes change month-to-month and  are hand packed with items carefully selected to help make you smile alongside a book bringing you tales of honest parenting. 
They are available to buy as a rolling subscription or as a gift box, ideal for a baby shower or any mum who needs a reminder of how great they are. My main aim is to support mum's and £1 from every box sold is donated to PANDAS Foundation.
