A stu­dent of jour­nal­ism at the time she fell preg­nant at 22, So­phie Shaw’s ac­count of first-time moth­er­ing is an au­then­tic, hon­est, funny, re­lat­able and (most im­por­tantly) read­able blog called The Young Mummy. It all be­gan with her first post “My Mir­a­cle Baby” spark­ing an au­di­ence of moth­ers, young women and men who ap­pre­ci­ated her truth­ful and re­fresh­ing words about preg­nancy. She found there were al­ways con­stant re­minders of how joy­ful and won­der­ful be­ing preg­nant and be­ing a mum is, yet no one spoke of the harsh re­al­i­ties. So­phie took it upon her­self to speak the truth; the good, the bad, the ugly and the hairy. With the most gor­geous blue-eyed babe of a son, Bobby, as fod­der for her blog and so­cial me­dia feeds, So­phie also rubs shoul­ders with the glam­our set and shares her be­hind-the-scenes ac­cess with fol­low­ers.
