ON shar­ent­ing

I love be­ing an In­sta mum – peo­ple don’t re­alise it’s not about ‘miss­ing the mo­ment’. I share all par­ent­ing ex­pe­ri­ences – the good, bad and re­ally ugly! Is there any­thing I wouldn’t show? Yes, no nu­dity. But to be fair I’d flash a bit of boob if breast­feed­ing.

ON style

I love River Is­land. There’s so much good stuff for both Mae and I, but I try not to go over­board. The most I’ve ever spent is prob­a­bly £25 on a dress for Mae’s birth­day. She wears a lot of my stuff from the 80s. My mum kept it all stashed away and now the poor child is re­liv­ing those 80s sil­hou­ettes – puffed sleeves a gogo.

ON What she WON’T show

Lots of peo­ple talk about over-shar­ing, but why should I care if peo­ple film one of the most nat­u­ral things in the world – giv­ing birth? Kids might get miffed in years to come, but who isn’t slightly miffed with their par­ents? I fol­low loads of other In­sta mums but I love Gio­vanna Fletcher. She’s funny, real and the sort of per­son you feel would share a Big Mac and fries with you at 3am af­ter a night out.
