THE YOUNG MUMMY
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.
